On September 9, 2005 Belmont University (Nashville, Tenn.) will host an all day conference on American Hymnody. Most of the presentations will focus on Shaped-Note and Sacred Harp traditions. Dr. Ron Pen form the University of Kentucky will be the featured speaker.
The conference this year is held in conjunction with the United Sacred Harp Convention, a premier gathering of singers from across North America. Those attending the conference are invited to stay and participate in the singing on Saturday and Sunday, Sept. 10 and 11.
If you have never experienced Sacred Harp singing on this scale, I assure you it will be an experience you won't soon forget.
