The Foundry Sings! “Jolene”

The Foundry Sings! “Jolene”

Wednesday, April 17, 2024

The rafters of the 160 year old Stone Hall at the Miners Foundry Cultural Center will ring on Wednesday, April 17, 2024, from 6:00 – 8:30 p.m.! Bar opens at 5:30 p.m. and the singing begins at 6:00 p.m.

This month, we’re giving voice to “Jolene” from country music superstar Dolly Parton!! This mega hit transcends time and speaks to each new generation of music lovers.

Rod Baggett, choral conductor at Nevada Union High School and Seven Hills Middle School, along with multi-instrumentalist and singer Jonathan Meredith, will lead voices unified in song. This unique countywide experience aims to gather people of all ages and singing levels under one roof to share in the power of song. The Foundry Sings is inspired by the popular Choir! Choir! Choir!, a weekly drop-in singing event based in Toronto, Canada, which has attracted professional musicians such as Rufus Wainwright to sing with the group.
