First-Ever Singing in Lockport Illinois!

On Sunday, November 16, from 2-4 pm, we will hold the first-ever Sacred Harp singing in Chicago's southwest suburbs. Join first-timers and old-timers alike to sing in the historic Gaylord Building on the I&M Canal in Lockport. Leaders from Chicago’s active Sacred Harp Community will provide an introduction with historical information and then conduct a traditional singing from the 1991 Denson book.

Admission is free, but donations are appreciated. Come early or stay late for a meal at the Public Landing Restaurant on the first floor of the Gaylord Building. More info, directions etc. can be found on their website.
