Greensboro, NC – The Carolina Theatre of Greensboro, together with Crumley Roberts, is pleased to announce the 3rd Annual This CommUnity Sings, a free event for all ages, on Sun., Mar. 8. 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 at every skill level to gather at the Carolina Theatre in Downtown Greensboro 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 together.

This year’s songs will feature Hallelujah (Leonard Cohen), Respect (Aretha Franklin), and Lean on Me (Bill Withers). Warm-ups will include Africa (Toto) and Macarena (Los Del Rio).

Doors will open at 2PM, with entertainment on stage to welcome the audience. The sing-along will begin at 3PM. Guests will learn the songs first, led by musical director Wesley McCleary-Small and accompanist Christy Wisuthseriwong. Following the warmups, the entire theatre will raise their voices together.

This event is free and open to the public; no tickets are necessary. First come, first served. The concessions stand will be open for those who wish to purchase snacks.

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
