My wife and I are interested in hearing the Sacred Harp concert at Hoboken. Can anyone give me some information concerning times and place where the concert takes place?

The monthly Sacred Harp singing in Hoboken, GA takes place from 7pm-9pm. It is usually held at the Hoboken Elementary School and takes place on Saturday night preceding the 3rd Sunday of the month. It is not a concert, but a community singing event. Ordinarily about 80-100 people attend this unique event each month.

Information about the Hoboken singings can be found on www.fasola.org - look for the directories of singings from the "Cooper" edition of the Sacred Harp. The folks in Hoboken have something like a five generation plus tradition of this way of community singing -people from all across the country make the trip to be present for their annual all day singing.
