  • Tuesday, November 1, from 7-9 PM, CAC, 189 Beaver Street, North Adams, MA
  • Monday, November 7, from 6-8 PM, West Hall at RPI, Troy, NY

These sessions will be a participatory singing workshop introducing shape note music and a set of new songs about Roosevelt Island written by me (Jesse Pearlman Karlsberg) and Carrie Dashow.

The songs are short and long, happy, sad, and confused, but most are probably easy to sing. This is a great chance to learn a little about shape note music and an opportunity to support the work that Carrie and Jesse are doing.

The songs we practice will be sung at Carrie’s thesis show at CAC on November 10, where singers who attend these workshops will be joined by shape note singers from Eastern New York and Western Massachusetts.

So—please come sing our new songs!

Send Carrie or Jesse an e-mail if you’re interested.
