Today, at the monthly session, we found out that Justin Bowen is doing a workshop on shape-note music for the January Jubilee conference of the Nashville chapter of the American Guild of Organists. I have found out the details for the workshop because some folks wanted to find out more about it.
It will take place on Saturday, January 13, 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM, at St. George's Episcopal Church located at the corner of Harding Pike and Belle Meade Blvd. Registration begins at 8:15 AM, and the cost is $15.00 which includes lunch, snacks, and materials. Justin's workshop begins at 11:00 AM and will last 45 minutes. He will do an overview with some history, the current state of the singing, and some instruction. There will be some singing, but, as he said, "45 minutes isn't much time."
I have a conflict on Saturday, so I cannot go. If anyone decides to go, I'll be interested in hearing about it.
