Rogersville Arts Council to host Singers of United Lands

 

For the fourth year,  The Rogersville Arts Council, is bringing “Singers of United Lands” to Hawkins County. Due to a generous offer of their sanctuary, there will be a Sunday afternoon concert, open to the public on April 6 at 2:30pm at the First Baptist Church of Rogersville.

The mission of S.O.U.L. is developing international and cultural relationships through vocal music from around the world. “I have hosted the S.O.U.L. groups for five years and each year the musical professionalism and exemplary personal qualities of the singers have impressed me”, says Guerry McConnell of the Rogersville Arts Council.

Singers of United Lands (S.O.U.L.) is a non-profit (501.c.3) organization that was incorporated in 2002, and presents a unique quartet of professional young adult singers- each from a different country. Every year a new team of four singers representing high-quality vocal musicianship, geographical diversity, and enthusiasm for sharing about their respective cultures, is formed to share their native songs and cultures with schools and communities throughout the U.S. and beyond.

This year the group is made up of singers Sonja from Croatia, Gabriel from Uruguay, Andrew from Nigeria and Shih-Hao from Taiwan. The group travels for 6 months throughout the Eastern United States and into Africa bringing multicultural education and communication to their audiences.

The ticket price at the door for the concert is $5 for all ages, under 5 years is free.

Volunteer High School is hosting the group in concert, on Monday morning, April 7, before they travel to other dates in the Maryland & D.C. area.
