Middlebury Shape-Note Singing resumes on Sunday, October 7, from 1:00 to 3:00 PM in the Mitchell Green Lounge, on the top floor of the tower of McCullough Student Center, Old Chapel Road at Middlebury College.

Shape-Note or Sacred Harp singing is an American traditional style of a cappella, four-part, social and spiritual, community-based, shape-note singing. The music is powerful, moving, sublime and raucous, ancient and haunting. It has been called “18th century a cappella heavy metal” and “bluegrass Gregorian chanting.”

Mitchell Green Lounge is accessible by stairs and elevator. Loaner books are available. For more information, see FaceBook/Middlebury Shape Note Singers,, or contact David Rosenberg, The singings are sponsored by the Scott Center for Religious and Spiritual Life and the Music Department.
