Children are always welcome at Potomac River Shape-Note/Sacred Harp Singing Conventions!


However, this year no childcare will be provided, so parents must arrange for supervision of their own children as needed. Well-behaved children are most welcome in the singing halls, and they are free to sing or listen to the music as they wish. Sacred Harp singers believe that it is good for children to be exposed, actively or passively, to the sound of the music and the concept of community-style singing.

The Great Falls Grange is located in Great Falls Park, a Fairfax County park which has a fine playground with elaborate playsets for children. If weather is inclement, children can play on the lower level of the Grange, accompanied by an adult.
