GROUP SINGING: Wilmington Sacred Harp Singers

Sunday, 2/23/2020
1:30PM-4:00PM  
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. 1:30 pm: Instruction for beginners, 2:00 - 4 pm: Group Singing, all. Songbooks provided, beginners welcome! Learn more about Sacred Harp singing at fasola.org.

Free and open to the public. Weyerhaeuser Reception Hall.

Wilmington USCT Public Sculpture Fundraiser

Saturday, 3/14/2020
4:00PM-6:00PM  
With your help, CAM will illuminate the story of the United States Colored Troops (USCT) and their contribution to the history of North Carolina through a dynamic figurative work of public art by artist Stephen Hayes.

Cameron Art Museum was the site of the Battle of Forks Road, a Civil War skirmish whose victory was won by the United States Colored Troops (USCT) and led to the fall of Wilmington. Many of the 1600 African-American soldiers who fought here were native to this area, and after the war, many of them stayed to settle, raise their families, and build community. Their impact is significant, yet their story is virtually unknown.

Enjoy refreshments and cash bar, listen to the sounds of Mangroove, and raise funds for the USCT Public Sculpture Project. This will also be a chance to meet Project sculptor Stephen Hayes, Brock Family visiting instructor in Studio Arts in the Department of Art, Art History, and Visual Studies at Duke University.

For more information, please contact hwilson@cameronartmuseum.org or john@cameronartmuseum.com or call (910) 395-5999 ext. 1003.
