The sweet and powerful sounds of Sacred Harp music will fill the air on Saturday, April 14 when the park will host a Sacred Harp sing in the church. At 9:30a.m. there will be an abbreviated singing school for visitors unfamiliar with the Shape Note  (or Fasola) singing tradition. The sing will get underway at 10:00a.m. The singers will gather under the spreading branches of a nearby live oak tree and enjoy a traditional dinner on the grounds from 12:00p.m.-1:00p.m. Visitors are encouraged to bring a traditional covered dish and join in the fellowship.
