We are very excited to announce that we will hold the Pioneer Valley All-Day Singing (PVADS) on Saturday, July 6, 2024 at the Sunderland Town Park and Pavilion, which is only about a mile from our historic PVAD venue (The 1st Congregational Church of Sunderland). The singing will start at 10:00 a.m. We will have dinner on the grounds!

In order to ensure the safest possible environment, we are requiring:

  • If you are experiencing symptoms of illness, including fever, cough, sore throat, runny nose, etc, please sit this one out. A negative COVID test is not required.

The pavilion provides a large covered area, bathrooms, kitchen facilities, and ample parking. Click here for directions to Sunderland Town Park.

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.

We have the park until 8 p.m., so we can continue to hang out and visit with people at the Park after the singing. The Park has a large barbecue pit, so if we have support for it and grill masters willing to come forward, "grilling and chilling" could happen.

The Harp of Ages singing will be held on Monday, July 8, at the home of Wendy Sibbison in Greenfield, MA. More details to follow.
