Saturday, October 29, 2022
10am to 3:30pm
Sunderland Town Park Pavilion, 42 Park Road, Sunderland


Please join us for the 14th Annual Berkshire Foothills All Day Singing, revised edition, and date. All are welcome, regardless of past experience with Sacred Harp singing or any kind of singing. We will break from 12:30 to 1:30 for dinner on the grounds. Hot mulled cider will be available.  Please bring your own coffee to start the day, and tea bags to share if desired.

We will sing from the 1991 Denson edition of The Sacred Harp. Books will be available for sale or loan. 

The singing will be held at the Sunderland Town Park and Pavilion, which is only about a mile from the church in Sunderland center. For GPS directions, use42 Park Road, Sunderland. This is the last house right before the Sign located at the entrance into the Park.  Click here for directions to Sunderland Town Park.

In accordance with the policy of WMSHC Inc, the non-profit overseeing the event, all attendees over the age of 5 must be vaccinated for Covid-19 and take a home test within 24 hours of the event. Please bring:

  • Your vaccination card or picture thereof to show at registration
  • A picture of your negative Covid test, taken within previous day

*Please be advised that there may be young, unvaccinated children present.

The park is not open to the general public so we will have it for our private use. The pavilion provides a large covered area, bathrooms, kitchen facilities, and ample parking. The park is equipped with numerous picnic tables but no individual chairs, so we ask that local singers bring as many chairs as they can.

Weather permitting there will likely be interest in singing from other sources, including new songs, at the end of the day. We have the pavilion reserved until 8 pm. 

We will need help with registration, Covid protocol, set up and clean up. Please let us know if you can help with one or more!
