Fall 2021 Concert Postponed
Sunday, September 26 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Join us Under the Sails at Union Square in downtown Hickory, just steps from the soon-to-be-completed City Walk portion of the Hickory Trail. Special thanks to our concert underwriters the United Arts Council of Catawba County and the City of Hickory. Bring your chairs and refreshments.
The concert will open with André Thomas’s “I Hear America Singing.” The original text and tune celebrate our return to in-person singing. The selection also includes the African American Spiritual “Walk Together, Children,” a title and conviction that inspired the concert’s programing. Other selections tied to the walking/journeying/travel theme in the mostly-pops program include “Walking on Sunshine,” “Just a Closer Walk With Thee,” “Chattanooga Choo-Choo,” “On the Atchison, Topeka and the Santa Fe,” and “Don’t Stop Believing,” the number-one hit by the band Journey. The concert will also highlight “togetherness” through the performance of popular music and Broadway tunes with inspiring messages such as “Wind Beneath My Wings,” “You Raise Me Up,” “You Will Be Found” (from Dear Evan Hanson), “What a Wonderful World,” “Bridge Over Troubled Water,” and “You’ll Never Walk Alone” (from Carousel).
We cannot wait to share with you the gift of live singing accompanied by a live full orchestra on Sunday, September 26, 5pm, Under the Sails! **Postponed**
