Gospel Sings

programmed by FSGW

Group singing will take place outdoors for only 2 hours. Must be vaccinated and symptom free - we also ask that you bring a mask  

We sing an eclectic collection of hymns and "God songs" (as Helen Schneyer termed them), often with more enthusiasm than precision. We usually sing a cappella, but guitars, banjos, mandolins, dobros, and even an Irish harp have added to our enjoyment on occasion. There are no period, style, or creed restrictions, and new material is always appreciated. A typical evening might include Shall We Gather at the RiverWashed in the BloodWho'll Sing For Me?, Where the Soul Never Dies, and Little Moses. The Gospel Sing is not a religious service – it's just joyful group singing, with an occasional discussion of lyrics. "Who is this Ebenezer I'm going to raise?" or "Who are the Achans who are busy far far away?" or "What is the significance of the Great Speckled Bird?" Everyone is welcome!

WhenMonthly, usually at 4pm on second Sundays. 

Where: Outdoors in Takoma Park, MD. Dates and RSVP information are included in the FSGW Newsletter and the FSGW Calendar.
