The FSGW sponsors monthly singings of early American hymns, anthems, and fuguing tunes in unaccompanied four-part harmony, every fourth Sunday afternoon (except in December) and also on New Year's Day. The main tunebook is The Sacred Harp (1991), but The Shenandoah Harmony (2013) and The Christian Harmony (1959) are also used, and original shape-note compositions by local singers are sometimes sung. There are three hours of singing (four on New Year's), fueled by a potluck dinner break. All are welcome to come and sing or listen for as long as desired. Loaner tunebooks are available.
