Wilmington Sacred Harp Singers (http://bit.ly/WilmNCSacredHarp) presents a traditional Sacred Harp Singing and invite you to join in the music and raise your voice in song! This dynamic form of a cappella social singing dates back to Colonial America, using a modern reprint of the 1844 songbook "The Sacred Harp". Sacred Harp and related shape-note styles are the oldest continuous singing traditions in the United States. Surviving as a living tradition in parts of the South, notably Georgia and Alabama, Sacred Harp music has been discovered by new generations of singers who have spread the heritage across North America and to Australia and Europe.

The music is loud, vigorous and intense. It is meant to be sung, not just observed. No previous experience is necessary. Learn more about Sacred Harp singing at fasola.org. Free and open to the public, Weyerhaeuser Reception Hall.

Willie E. Atkinson and The Transitional Jazz Trio (*2nd Thurs.)

The extraordinarily smooth jazz/blues vocalist and composer Willie E. Atkinson makes his Jazz @ The CAM debut with his signature ability to create a unique and unforgettable experience for audiences with his fluid interpretation of jazz and blues standards. “I feel a good song is defined by the story it tells through its lyrics or an unforgettable musical movement as spoken in Miles Davis’ “So What” or Oliver Nelson’s “Stolen Moments.” …Willie E. Atkinson (http://willieeatkinsonjazz-blues.weebly.com). Whether exploring the syncopated rhythms of a swinging tune or telling the story of a lonesome, wanting heart, he offers a fresh approach and seizes every moment to make the song his own.
