June Singing and Planning for July...

This will be a brief reminder that the Shiloh Singers monthly singing in the General Store on the grounds of the Shiloh Museum of Ozark History this Sunday afternoon, June 11, 2017. The singing will start around 1:30 P.M. and will conclude about 4:00 P.M. Gosh it feels good to get back on normal Arkansas time!

Visitors, guests, young or old who wish to learn more about Sacred Harp singing with shape notes are welcome to sit in on the session. We even have loaner books so you can follow along and if you wish, you can sing along or just pat your feet to the music. We are very informal and all are welcome.

If you arrive a little early, singers and visitors are welcome to join those who meet around noon at AQ Chicken House on Business 71, officially at 1207 N Thompson St, Springdale which is only a few blocks from the Museum. Just tell the staff you're looking for the Shiloh Singers and they can usually point you in the correct direction.  

Second, if you look at the singing calendar on the right-hand side of the webpage, it's time to make plans for the Annual Shape Note Gathering, Ozark Folk Center, Mountain View, AR. The event is scheduled for Thursday evening, July 6th, Friday, July 7th, and a all-day singing on Saturday, July 8th at the Stone County Historical Society in the Old High School Building at 204 School Ave., just off of Main Street in Mountain View. More information is found on the 2017 Regional Singing Page (page 4 of this website) with additional details about the schedule.

If you can't get to the Shape Note Gathering in Mountain View, the Shiloh Singers will be back at the General Store on Sunday, July 9th. Hope to see you at one or more of the singings in June or July.
