Old Fashioned Singing
at the Historic Chautauqua Auditorium in Getzendaner Park
Let us take you back to a time almost forgotten when Christian folks gathered
in white-framed churches and under brush arbors to sing their faith out loud
after enjoying dinner on the grounds!

The staged production of Waxahachie's OLD FASHIONED SINGING will usher you back to the first half of the 20th Century when southern folks gathered to sing together under brush arbors, in white-framed church buildings... and the Chautauqua Auditorium!
With live acoustic instruments, twelve singers present an hour and a half of congregational songs popularized by the Revivalist Movement in the American south.
This is not Southern Gospel Quartet music. These are the songs of the people - the songs which carried them through the Great Depression, the Dust Bowl, and two World Wars.
