Together with the Las Cruces Sacred Harp Singers, we co-host an annual convention in honor of Gerald Hand, a dedicated and fondly remembered singer from New Mexico. The Elder Gerald Hand Memorial Sing takes place on the first Sunday in March and the preceding Saturday. On even-numbered years, the sing takes place in Tucson; on odd-numbered years, the sing takes places in Las Cruces.
Registration opens 30 minutes prior to the start time each day. We will have dinner on the grounds at noon both days. All are welcome: beginners, experienced singers, and listeners. We will sing from The Sacred Harp (1991 edition). Tunebooks will be available on loan or for purchase. Find an event listing on Facebook.
