Corona virus update:

We are cancelling the Swarens Memorial Higher Ground singing that was to be held in Bloomington Indiana 3/21.

I hope to see folks at the Rust Memorial in October. Check back in April for further updates and on our Facebook group page. Just search “Bloomington Shape Notes” on Facebook. Take care!

Bloomington singings are held on the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of each month from 7-9 PM in the lower level of the Fairview Methodist Church.  (600 W 6th St.) Park in the lot on the north side of the building and enter through the lower level doors on the southeast side of the building. Absolutely anyone is welcome to join us…Bring a snack to share if you can!

Loaner books are provided. We sing from both the 1991 revision The Sacred Harp and The Shenandoah Harmony.

If you are brand new to Sacred Harp, it’s a great time to start coming as we prepare for the Swarens All-Day Singing on March 21st!
