Welcome

Due to the ongoing pandemic, our weekly singing on Yale’s campus has been suspended until further notice.

The Yale-New Haven Regular Singing has gathered weekly since January 2010 to sing hymns, fuging tunes, and anthems from the Sacred Harp and other collections of shape-note music.

Our weekly Tuesday-evening singing is open to all, regardless of experience or ability. We sing from 7 to 9 pm in Room 106 of Stoeckel Hall, located at 469 College Street in downtown New Haven. We have a healthy supply of loaner books for you to use, and friendly singers who will help you get situated.

Every year on the third Sunday in April, we host the New Haven All-Day Singing, which brings singers from the wider shape-note community to sing in the Faculty Room in historic Connecticut Hall, the oldest building on the Yale campus. This year (2022) we will hold a small singing in Guilford, CT, in lieu of our typical all-day. 

For more information, contact Ian Quinn by email at ian.quinn@yale.edu. To receive weekly emails about upcoming singings (and to be notified when activities resume), join our Google Group. We can also be found on Facebook.
