Old-Time Singing School

The North­west Arkansas Sa­cred Harp Singers will hold an old-time gospel singing school in the Shiloh Meet­ing Hall in down­town Springdale from 6:30-8 p.m. Fri­day, Oct. 26. The school will be taught by Matt Bell of Mem­phis, Tenn.

“Sa­cred Harp singing is full of his­tory and tra­di­tion that dates back to the 1700s,” said Syd Cald­well, a mem­ber of the North­west Arkansas Sa­cred Harp Singers. “In the song­books we use, each note on the mu­si­cal scale is rep­re­sented by a dif­fer­ent geo­met­ric shape. In the old days, this was an easy way to teach folks how to read mu­sic,” ex­plained Cald­well.

The singing school will be fol­lowed with an old­fash­ioned singing con­ven­tion from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Satur­day, Oct. 27. A potluck din­ner will be served at noon.

All ac­tiv­i­ties are free. Regis­tra­tion is not re­quired. The Shiloh Meet­ing Hall is lo­cated at 121 W. Huntsville Av­enue; the park­ing lot is ac­ces­si­ble from Price Av­enue.
