Greensboro, NC – The Carolina Theatre of Greensboro is pleased to announce its 2nd Annual This CommUnity Sings, a free event for all ages, on Sunday, March 3. Doors will open at 2PM with live entertainment; the community sing-along will begin at 3PM.
This CommUnity Sings invites singers—and lovers of song—of every skill level to gather at the Carolina Theatre for a musical community celebration. The goal of This CommUnity Sings is to fill the seats of the Carolina Theatre and feature more than 1,000 voices singing Joy to the World (Three Dog Night), We Are the World (USA for Africa), and Bohemian Rhapsody (Queen). Warm-ups will include YMCA (The Village People) and La Bamba (Ritchie Valens), with guest singers Lalenja Harrington and Nisah DiMeo leading the singing throughout the afternoon.
Doors will open at 2PM with the UNC-G Spartones and The Gate City Ramblers on hand to entertain guests. Singing will begin at 3PM. The audience will learn the songs first, led by musical director Wesley McCleary-Small and accompanist Christy Wisuthseriwong. Following the welcome and prep, the entire theatre will raise voices together.
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.) First come, first served. Gather your family, call your friends, get the band back together, and then join the commUNITY!
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. #ThisCommUnitySings
