The Kannapolis Arts crew will be out at the First Friday in Salisbury on Dec. 4 for Salisbury Sings in the Season and we want YOU to join us! We will be singing a selection of Christmas carols, solid, old favorites and we will be taking a page from the Pop-Up Chorus that meets in Raleigh where a song is selected and a group meet up, almost in a flash mob style, to start singing together. The goal is to come out and sing with enthusiasm!
We will meet at 5 p.m. Friday, Dec. 4 outside of Dead Ed’s, 123 E Innes St, Salisbury. You know the classics, which we will all be singing!
