Join the Carolina Theatre for an afternoon of song, provided by YOU! This FREE community event, a part of the Carolina Theatre’s 90th Anniversary festivities, invites singers and lovers of song at every skill level and ability imaginable to gather at the Carolina Theatre for an afternoon of musical commUNITY celebration. This CommUnity Sings will feature more than 1,000 voices singing Carolina in My Mind, All You Need is Love, and What a Wonderful World.
Doors will open at 2PM with the Grimsley High School Blue Steel Drum Line and the North Carolina A&T University Cold Steel Drum Line to welcome you. Singing will begin at 3PM. We’ll learn the songs first (the pros* will help us with that!), and then we’ll raise our voices.
*Welborn E. Young, the Director of Choral Activities at UNC-G and the Artistic Director and Conductor of Bel Canto Company, and Ron Jones, the Fellowship Gospel Choir Director at NC A&T, will bring their expertise to lead us through This CommUnity Sings, with Eric Chilton serving as our host and emcee.
Gather your family, call your friends, get the band back together, and then join the commUNITY!
*****If you are bringing a group, please plan to arrive together or meet in the lobby before sitting down. We will NOT be able to hold blocks of seats in the auditorium.*****
THIS EVENT IS FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC! No tickets are necessary. (The concessions stand will be open for those who wish to purchase snacks.) We hope to fill the theatre, so please plan to arrive early. First come, first served.
The core mission of This CommUnity Sings is to foster a sense of unity, harmony, oneness, cooperation and connectivity throughout Greensboro and Guilford County. By bringing together all the myriad elements of our community to create a harmonious whole, our hope is that this simple act will create a ripple effect that will spread not only throughout Our Town but also to other communities. Using the universal language of music, we believe that this community sing-along will raise awareness that we are, indeed, one people and will inspire others to understand that there is strength through diversity.
