Welcome to Vancouver Sacred Harp

Join us to sing Sacred Harp every Thursday in East Vancouver

All are welcome! No performances or rehearsals, commitment, experience, or ability required, just a wide variety of people coming together for singing, fellowship, and food.

 

 

This four-part a cappella music dates from the 16th through the present day, and is characterised by haunting harmonies, traditional modes, raucous songs, serene hymns, fast fugues, and high-energy anthems.

Any type, quality, or range of voice will find a comfortable and important place with us. Beginning singers are always welcome and musical reading ability is not a requirement.

At a Sacred Harp singing, there is no admission charge, no choir director, no rehearsal, no performance, no membership – just singing that many describe as the most powerful, most intense musical experience of their lives. We glory in the powerful and joyful experience of singing our hearts out together.
