I hope everyone who has finished and filed all their federal and state taxes can come sing with us on Sunday, April 14th. Since I still need to finish, this will of necessity be brief.
First, the Shiloh Singers will be singing in the Shiloh Meeting Hall located one block north of the Shiloh Museum's barn on Sunday, April 14th, from 1:30 until 4:00 P.M. Those who were able to attend the Missouri State Sacred Harp Convention can use the break and the "discussion groups" that gather before the singing at AQ's Chicken House just before noon and the after singing "My throat needs ice cream" session at the Springdale Denny's over by the Interstate. We have a good time catching up on all the news with some of our friends that we've grown to care about and whose friendship means so much to us.
Second, the 4th Sunday West Fork Singing continues it's invitation to come sing in the West Fork's Library Meeting Hall. We've seen new faces and singers who live south of Fayetteville who find it easier to get to West Fork. Mix that with the dedicated Shiloh singers who want to extend our group and we have a good potential for growth. For those who are new singers, it's a excellent opportunity to practice and spend more time learning new songs from the red Denson book. The times are 1:30 until 3:30 P.M. on April 28th.
Third, on Saturday, May 4th, the Shiloh Singers from Oklahoma to the Mississippi have the chance to sing together at the Northwest Arkansas Sacred Harp Singing Convention in Harrison, at St. John's Episcopal Church's Parish Hall. The singing will start at 9:30 A.M. and continue until 3:00 P.M. with a pot luck lunch at noon. The PDF copy of the flyer (suitable for printing for your friends and potential singers) is attached.

There are even more singings in May with singings in Old Washington, AR in the historic Old Washington Methodist Church on Saturday, May 18th and the Old Folks Singing in Tull, AR, on Sunday, May 19th. The two venues are close enough that it's easy to attend two good old-fashioned Arkansas singings on the same weekend. More details to follow.
Hope to sing with you soon...
