Sacred Harp Singing

Regular Dayton Singings

Our regular singings are held from 3:00 - 6:00 PM on the 4th Sunday of each month.  These singings are held at the Lutheran Church of Our Savior (LCOS) in Oakwood, Ohio (get directions).  We sing from both The Sacred Harp, 1991 Edition (Denson Revision) and The Sacred Harp (Cooper Revision) books.  Loaner books will be available for visitors to use, but you may also purchase a book for $20.  There is a delicious carry-in potluck at each of our regular singings, and we break for supper at about 4:30 PM.

Please join us for a memorable experience of singing, fellowship, and great food!
