Come dance with us: The Salisbury-Rowan Choral Society to host BTS sock hop

Back-to-school sock hop dance for individuals, couples, and families on Thursday, Aug. 6  from 7 until 9:30 p.m. at the Heritage Room, 118 E. Council St. 

Tickets are $5 for adults, $3 for children under 12, and will be available at the door.

There will be live music by Play It Forward, costume contests, games and prizes. Ice cream floats, food, and drinks will be available for purchase, cash or check; donations are tax deductible.

 

The Salisbury-Rowan Choral Society is a nonprofit, dedicated to bringing high quality music programs to our local communities. The organization, now in its 106th year, is one of the oldest in the country, under the directorship of Matt Newton.

Its members have performed free concerts for Salisbury and the surrounding communities, including past performances at the Kennedy Center in Washington DC. Member ages in the group range from 16 to 97 and anyone with a love of music is welcome. There are no auditions (except for small group or special selections).

As a full group, the SRCS holds a music-themed fundraiser each summer to support these concerts as well as the group’s many other music outreach projects. In addition, every concert is rolled out to multiple assisted living facilities. This has been especially well-received for each Christmas concert as the group books two or even three performances per night during the Christmas season.

Summer jazz shows are another big hit combined with a silent auction. Members are not compensated and 100% of all monies received is used to further the mission of the Salisbury-Rowan Choral Society.

In the past year alone, the SRCS performed seven USO Tribute shows honoring veterans and collecting for NC USO and Wounded Warrior projects, planned and conducted concerts at Christmas for the local community and several senior nursing facilities, and also collaborated with other music organizations in the area to bring music programs to Salisbury-Rowan citizens with a Winter opera performance and Spring pops concert.

Several performances each year typically incorporate local high school choral groups and young aspiring singers. The SRCS also sponsors a music scholarship for deserving high school graduates.

You can visit the organization on Facebook and are welcome to attend any concert.
