Overview: Our program features Italian, Scottish, and American songs from around 1800, a violin sonata by Correlli, Celtic and American traditional instrumental music, Shape Note psalmody, and a sing-along as Grand Finale!

About . . .: Shape note singing is a uniquely American tradition, a proudly inclusive and democratic part of our shared cultural heritage. The note-heads are four different shapes matched up and sung with solfege (fa so la and mi), aiding sight-singing in four-part harmony. The tradition is a living, breathing, ongoing practice passed directly to us by generations of singers, many gone on before and many still living. In fact, the tradition was born from colonial “singing schools” whose purpose was to teach beginners to sing, and our methods continue to reflect this goal. Groups are usually very social and open to anyone. Fasola singing (another name for this style) is not affiliated with any denomination and in earlier times it was a place where, say, the Baptists and Methodists could sing together. Here today in Santa Cruz we like to say that here the Wiccans and the Buddhists can sing together!
