A shape-note singing workshop, led by Karl Lundgren of Sitka, will be held this Saturday, Sept. 11, from 3-7 p.m. at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, 5100 Glacier Highway (next to Dragon Inn). Lundgren has been involved in shape-note singing for more than 15 years, and has previously led workshops at the Alaska Folk Festival.
Shape-note refers to a notation system of distinct shapes, used to guide singers without formal music training. To find out more about shape-note singing, visit www.fasola.org.
