6th Ireland Sacred Harp Convention in Cork, 5-6 Mar. 2016

The Sacred Harp Singers of Cork announce that the 6th Ireland Sacred Harp Convention will be held on 5-6 March in St Marie's of the Isles primary school, Bishop St., Cork, across the road from St Finbarre’s cathedral, as in the past few years. Registration opens at 10.00 a.m., and singing starts at 10.30 a.m. on both Saturday and Sunday.

Events will spread out on both sides of these dates into 'a fine five-day extravaganza', to quote the website. The Cork Sacred Harp circle will hold its usual weekly Thursday sing (7.00-9.00 p.m.) on 3 Mar. at the Unitarian Church, Princes St., with social drinks locally to follow. On Friday 4 Mar. the Convention's singing school (6.00-8.00 p.m.) will be taught by Fynn Titford Mock at St Marie's of the Isles.

A Saturday Social will be held at the Cork Cricket Club from 7.00 p.m. (instruments welcome), and on Sunday night the circle will be featured guests at the Cork Singers Club upstairs in An Spailpín Fánach. Finally, there will be Monday brunch from 12 noon at the Woodford, Paul St., followed by some Christian Harmony singing from 3.00 p.m. in St Finbarre’s cathedral hall, Dean St.

Full details, including accommodation, are on the Sacred Harp Singers of Cork website.
