Singing news for the holiday season.
First, there’s a new sing this year at Silver Lake Mill in Dayton, Va. Come and sing the (somewhat rare) Harmonia Sacra Christmas tunes (plus others) on Sunday, Dec. 4, at 4 p.m. It’s the mill’s bicentennial year, making it a rare sing venue that was around when Harmonia Sacra was first published. It’s a smaller singing space with good acoustics, but come early to get a spot. Andrea Early will be the moderator.
Next, on New Year’s Day, due to a construction project at Weavers Mennonite, we’ll continue the Weaver’s tradition in 2023 at Park View Mennonite Church, 1600 College Avenue, Harrisonburg. The New Year’s Day sing is the longest-running sing we have, and this is just one more wrinkle in its storied history. The sing starts at 7 and the sound will be just as glorious. Come and sing.
Here’s a version of the tune NEW YEAR, with Weavers references, to get to ready.
