Capitol City Shape Note Singers at Old Alabama Town

On Thursday, July 21 from 9am to 4pm, come enjoy the centuries-old art of shape note singing! The Capitol City Shape Note Singers will return for their 30th annual singing event in the Loeb Reception Center at Old Alabama Town. This all-day event brings folks from around the state to sing together using the traditional art of shape notes. In 1801, shapes were added to music notations to help singers find pitch, and the tradition has been kept alive in the South for many years now. Swing by and hum a few bars or just sit back and enjoy the traditional musical stylings of the Shape Note Singers!

Sponsored by the Alabama Center for Traditional Culture, a division of the Alabama State Council on the Arts, and Landmarks Foundation. Feel free to stop by and listen anytime throughout the day! Free admission.
