-----------------------------

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.

So You'll Know What to Expect:

This is not just a sing-a-long event; this is a staged production.

 

A majority of the program is presented by the on-stage cast of auditioned singers, presenting well-prepared arrangements of the songs. At times you will be invited to sing along, but for the most part, the cast carries the show. While it is truly a "show," you will find it worshipful and meaningful... no matter what your musical tastes. There's something about these songs that draws us in and refreshes our spirits.

 

Bring a cushion or quilt --  the wooden pews are hard,

but they do have backs!

 

Note: The Auditorium is wheel-chair accessible, and handicapped parking is available near that entrance.
