Southern Harmony at Emory: Sacred Harp Sing, Dinner, and Tours of Pitts Theology Library

Emory University welcomes ATLA with an introduction to the Sacred Harp tradition and a chance to try it out with experienced singers as your guides, led by Dr. Jesse Karlsberg, an internationally recognized authority on the topic. This will be followed by a dinner at the Candler School of Theology and tours of the Pitts Theology Library. The integrated theology complex was completed in 2014, when the library opened, and it features several innovations that staff have developed, more than doubling library usage and attracting almost 10,000 visitors to its exhibits annually. The Pitts exhibit gallery features 22 custom cases devoted to the exhibition, “The Image of a Fractured Church: Martin Luther and the 95 Theses” (http://pitts.emory.edu/exhibits/95theses2017/index.cfm ). Cost of dinner is included in conference registration and transportation to and from the hotel to Emory will be provided free of charge for all conference attendees.
