Voices in the Laurel concert celebrates patriotismWritten by Admin
Voices in the Laurel will perform at 3 p.m. on Nov. 6 at the First United Methodist Church in Waynesville.
The children’s choir “America, Of Thee I Sing Concert” is free and is intended to promote patriotism and honor veterans and those who serve to protect in local communities.
Choir Director Brown designed the concert to celebrate through music the fact that America is a melting pot, a refuge, and champions the oppressed.
The Concert Choir will also perform a recent addition to the folk song genre with text written by elementary students from Haywood County.
Three years ago, North Carolina composer Tom Shelton was commissioned by Haywood County Schools to take the poetry of elementary school students and write a piece for the Sing Haywood event sponsored by Haywood County Schools. Thus, “The Mountains Are Calling Me” was written, and has since been published.
