No Singing in Belfast on Sunday, June 18, 2017. See you there next month!!


Singings in Waterville occur on the 2nd Sunday of each month.

In our monthly singing, we use both the 1991 edition of the Sacred Harp, and the 2012 edition of the Shenandoah Harmony. The first session of singing uses the Sacred Harp, and the Shenandoah Harmony is used in the second. Both books are available for loan or purchase.

The monthly Waterville Shape Note Singing will be held on August 13, 2017 from 2 to 5 p.m. at the First Baptist Church, 1 Park Street, Waterville, Maine. See Maine Singings for other regular Maine singings.

First Baptist Church, Waterville, Maine:
The church was dedicated on December 26, 1826, and is the oldest public building in Waterville. One pastor, Samuel F. Smith (pastor from 1834-1841) wrote the words to many hymns, including My Country 'Tis of Thee, and 3 hymns that are in the Sacred Harp, 118 Stockwood, 213b Warning, and 385b Can I Leave You.

From I-95, take Exit 130, and turn south on Main St; continue on Main St (ME-104) for about 1.4 miles, then take a slight right onto Elm St (ME-104/ME-11) ; the church is on the right. Parking is available on the street, and at the Waterville concourse (left at the light at the church)

From the east (Rts 100,201,137) in Winslow, cross the bridge to Waterville and continue straight. Turn right at the 3rd light onto Elm St, the church is at the next light.

The entrance to the vestry where we sing is on the Park St. side of the church.
