Boone150 Celebrates Sacred Sounds of the High Country

The Town of Boone’s sesquicentennial celebration, Boone 150, continues on Saturday, October 1, at Three Forks Baptist Church, with Sacred Sounds, featuring performances by local church groups and choirs,

starting at 2:00 p.m. The concert will feature a number of local musicians and a special choir with members from several Baptist and Methodist churches in the area.  Historic Three Forks Baptist Church dates to the late 1700s, when pioneers began migrating to isolated wilderness settlements in and beyond the Blue Ridge Mountains back in 1790.  One of the members of the Three Forks choir, Stephanie Greer, has been integral in helping organize the event. She has been working with musician and Methodist choir member, Pat Lanno, to organize a choir of singers from a number of Baptist and Methodist churches in the Boone area.  The Sacred Sounds concert begins at 2:00 p.m. at Three Forks Baptist Church, located at 1922 US Highway 421, in Boone. There is no admission for the performance, which is expected to last about two hours.
