There are several local shape-note singing groups in Georgia that meet four or more times a year for about 2 hours at a time. These singings are less formal than all-day singings. Since they meet frequently and tend to attract the same group of people each time, they offer an especially comfortable environment for practicing singing and leading skills. Newcomers are always welcome.
Be aware that locations can change and singings can be rescheduled or cancelled. Check our upcoming singings page for the latest information.

Our informal First Thursday singing is a good place for beginners in the Atlanta area to learn this style of music. We begin at 7:30 pm. Participants take turns choosing songs from the Sacred Harp (1991 ed.) until 8:30. During a short break for refreshments, we pass out copies of An Eclectic Harmony, a shape note sampler book that includes several beloved late 19th century hymns. Singing continues from both books until 9:30. Songbooks are available to borrow, buy, or share.
We meet the first Thursday of most months except December from 7:30 to 9:30 pm in the Emory Presbyterian Church fellowship building, 1886 North Decatur Road, Atlanta, GA 30307.
Directions: The church is 1/2 mile west of the intersection of Clairmont and North Decatur Road, on your right coming from Clairmont.
