Shape Note Singers program postponed at NC Museum of History Due to the inclement weather forecast, the North Carolina Museum of History will be closed tomorrow (Sunday, Dec. 9), and we will be postponing the Triangle Shape Note Singers program. Please save the date of Sunday, Feb. 24! Thank you for your patience and flexibility; if you have any questions, please let us know. We hope to see you at future events, and at the new date for this event. And, if you'd still like to donate to the Food Bank of Central & Eastern North Carolina, please visit their website You can also join the Triangle Shape Note Singers at their monthly sing in Chapel Hill on Sunday, Dec. 16; or at their monthly sing in Raleigh on Sunday, Dec. 23. Stay warm, and stay safe! *** This Music of the Carolinas concert will be a bit different, as the Shape Note Singers of the Research Triangle will share this distinctive music in the Museum lobby! In the shape note singing tradtion, singers sing a cappella (without accompaniment) and sit arranged by vocal part in a “hollow square,” facing one another across the square and taking turns at leading. Shape note singing began in Protestant churches in New England in America's early years, and it survived in the rural South and became recognized as an American art form in the 1960s. Today, local singers still gather three times a month around the Triangle to share the music and fellowship of the Shape Note Sing. The Shape Note Singers meet the second Sunday of each month in Durham, the third Sunday of each month in Chapel Hill, and the fourth Sunday of each month in Raleigh. They also host an annual convention in March, drawing singers from across the state and beyond. Sacred harp singing is another name for this style, referring to vocal cords; early practitioners of this musical style viewed vocal cords as the only instrument necessary. An 1844 songbook is titled Sacred Harp, which gives the music its name and helped it spread by using shapes (triangle, circle, square and diamond) to help singers identify the four notes used in each song. A limited number of books will be available for anyone who wants to follow along. HOLIDAY FOOD DRIVE This concert was originally scheduled to fall during the Museum's annual Holiday Food Drive for the Food Bank of Central and Eastern NC. Check out the list of the Food Bank's "Most Needed Items," and please consider participating while you're at the Museum. You can also donate to the Food Bank online - For every dollar donated, the Food Bank can provide $10 worth of food or five meals! Large print program notes will be available, and assistive listening devices will be available as well. Learn more about accessibility at PineCone events Although this event is free to attend, the performers are paid. Please consider making a donation to the series when you reserve your tickets. Thank you!

(Photo Credits: Freddy with mural - Scott Sharpe/News & Observer; Freddy in Park - Yara Allen) Jazz up your new year with a free concert featuring saxophonist Freddy Greene - Street Genie with his band: Bakru Hunsel (percussion), William Danny Ray (aka “Steele Will”) (drums), Stephen Klingman (guitar), and Rony Thomas (keyboard). For those who have witnessed a live performance by Freddy Greene, it is apparent that there is, indeed, magic in the air as he blows his silky tunes. This energetic jazz/funk musician and composer weaves the smooth and mellow sounds of classic jazz with innovative funk. Born in Franklinton, NC, in what had once been a “juke joint” (The Chicken Shack), Greene was exposed to music and the art of performing at an early age. He recalls people joyfully dancing, playing instruments, and singing in the Chicken Shack. Greene was inspired by his mother, Flora, an artist and storyteller, and by his father, Isaac, who gave the budding artist his first official instrument - a trombone - at age 11. He later began playing bass guitar, and by the age of 15 he was playing with a local band. Greene took to the saxophone at 17. He pursued his musical calling by attending St. Augustine’s College (Raleigh, NC) and North Carolina Central University (Durham, NC). While maintaining his studies, he ventured into the world of street playing where he fine-tuned the art of street performing. From this art form, he acquired his alias, “Street Genie.” Throughout his musical career, Greene has played for diverse audiences, including those honoring politicians and international figures, among those was the beloved Desmond Tutu. Greene continued to compose and perform while mentoring at risk students at the Sally B. Howard School for the Arts and Education (Wilson, NC), teaching them to play musical instruments. Among his CDs are Heavy on My Mind; Street Genie; You Say, I Do; and most recently, Solo Dancer, all of which showcase the artist’s creativity, skill, and love for the craft. Greene is currently working on a new album due out next year. Although he performs in various venues, Greene continues to embrace his love for street playing, maintaining his humble connection with the public. For this artist, whether large or small venues, “All the world is a stage.” Hunsel is a percussionist hailing from the South American country of Suriname has been playing with Greene and other artists since arriving in North Carolina in 1999.  Ray hails from the Bronx, N.Y. He comes from a great A.M.E family with good Christian values where he was always in the company of wonderful musicians. Very soon, his chops and skills on the drums were noticed by key musicians. He later moved to North Carolina, where he went on to become a professional drummer who eventually became known for his skills in being a solid pocket drummer, hence the nickname “Steele Will.” He has shared the stage with many great artists such as Timothy Wright, Martha Munizzi, Maurette Brown Clark, Cece Winans, Hezekiah Walker, Wake Chapel Church, Catina Rosemond, Veronica Evans, and Grace the Movement. In addition to performing with Greene, he also plays with Project 919 Band; Johnny White & the Elite Band; Lamont Bradshaw, and several others. Ray also has recorded with Wake Chapel Church (Bishop J. Jasper Wilkins) and Veronica Evans and has made several TV appearances, including WRAL's Spiritual Awakening. Klingman is a guitarist from Raleigh. He graduated from NC State in 2016 and has since been prolific as a member of the Durham band Tha Materials. Along with Greene, he also plays with pastor Shirley Caesar. Thomas took interest in music while still a child, sitting in church next to the organ and drummer. He began his musical journey in grade school; his first instrument was the clarinet. Today, he plays a variety of instruments, but he has made the ivories his primary instrument. He has recently produced and released two albums. Furthermore, Thomas continues to play with multiple bands, produce, and perform for all lovers of music. Large print program notes will be available, and assistive listening devices will be available as well. Learn more about accessibility at PineCone events Although this event is free to attend, the performers are paid.

January 26, 2019 North Carolina Boys Choir and Girls Choir Day Camps are open to  public (all children in our community between 7 and 14 years of age). When: Saturday, January 26, 2019; 9 AM – 2 PM (Free) Where: 1712 Willow Dr., Chapel Hill NC 27514.  (Corner of 15-501 and Willow Dr.)  We rent the nice, light-filled acoustic space at the Fellowship Hall at Binkley Memorial Baptist Church for the Choirs’ rehearsals and camps.  (NCBC is an independent non-profit arts organization, and is not affiliated with the Binkley Church.) The requirements are simple: No prior singing experience is needed. Love of singing and a wish to learn classic vocal and performance techniques. And (importantly!) a desire to have fun with other boys and girls while learning great music! What: We have professional vocal training, music theory introduction and lots of fun activities planned for each day. Snacks, Lunch and Water are provided to all camp participants. The added bonus is that participation in one of our day camps supplants/ takes place in lieu of a formal choir audition! We listen to your kids’ voices in a fun, low key camp environment among the group of their peers.  Children do not realize that in addition to having a good time at the camp, they are being auditioned too.  In our experience, this camp-based “audition replacement” works very well for shy kids. How: Please, fill out a short pre-registration form for January 26 music day camp below, so we could make appropriate logistical arrangements for our campers.  A slightly longer registration form will be available at check-in on January 26, and/or in the email we will send you shortly before the start of January camp.  We at the North Carolina Boys Choir and Girls Choir look forward to seeing you soon!
