“Hymns We Know By Heart,” a Sacred Music songfest, will be held Sunday, Sept. 30, at 4 p.m., on Franklin’s Town Square gazebo. The event is a front porch-style sing-along of familiar hymns and Spirituals, from “Amazing Grace” and “In The Garden” to “Swing Low, Sweet Chariot” and “This Little Light.” Cindy Miles and Bobbie Contino will lead the singing, with Lionel Caynon playing keyboard. Bring a hymnal if you wish.
The gazebo is on the corner of Main and Iotla Streets, across from the Macon County Courthouse. Attendees should bring a lawn chair. In case of rain, the audience sits under the gazebo cover.
This program is sponsored by the Arts Council of Macon County, with support from the Grassroots Arts Program of the North Carolina Arts Council, a division of the Department of Cultural Resources. The final event of the fall Sundays On The Square series is a concert by Remnants Classic Rock Band on Sunday, Oct. 7, at 4 p.m. For details, contact the Arts Council, www.artscouncilofmacon.org or (828)524-7683.
