HCS Honored with Community Award
The Community Relations Council of the City of Hickory honored the Hickory Choral Society on December 14, 2020 with the 2020 Human Relations Award. The committee cited our fall concert and the premiere of “Undivided” as an outstanding example of how our organization endeavors to contribute to and impact our community.
Their website explains, “The annual Human Relations Awards are designed to recognize any individual, youth, or organization/business that has gone above and beyond in promoting good human relations in the City of Hickory. ‘We are fortunate to live in a community where there are so many individuals and organizations making a positive difference,’ said Mandy Pitts Hildebrand, Chair of the CRC.
Special thanks to HCS’ own Erin Hooks who nominated us for this award. Congratulations and thanks to all the singers from HCS, Lenoir Rhyne University, Catawba Valley Community College, Lenoir Rhyne Youth Chorus, and area High Schools.
