Heritage Days Event Old Hymn Sing Returns September 6th
The immensely talented Morrow family: Daniel, Cassie and daughter Naavah will return to OHS this year.
Music lovers mark your calendars! The Fifth Annual Old Hymn Sing will make a joyful noise on Friday September 6th in the Clinton First United Methodist Church sanctuary. Doors open at 6:15 and the singing starts at 7:00.

Back again this year, long time friends, Sharon Cagle and Janie Templeton will rock the piano and organ for a mini concert beginning at 6:30. Their selections will put those in attendance in just the right mood for the program to follow.

The Old Hymn Sing is the brainchild of Elizabeth Jewell. The program is unique in that the music in the program must be written before 1950. With the exception of a microphone for musicians and the church organ, there are no electronic instruments. Everyone attending the Old Hymn Sing will get a chance to participate. The Old Hymn Sing committee chose ten hymns this year for the "All Sing" portion of the program. Cletus Murphy returns as song leader. Singing in parts and singing along are encouraged. For those who don't think they can sing, listening with gusto is also encouraged.

Interspersed in the All Sing are groups and soloists putting new life into the songs sung by the pioneers of Hickman County. At right, Henry Brazzell sings "I Shall Not Be Moved" at the 2018 Old Hymn Sing.

The Old Hymn Sing is an event of Hickman County Heritage Days. The music this year was written well before 1919, the year being recalled in Heritage Days. Music sung in congregation lifted the spirits of those wearied by the Great War, the devastating tornado of 1918 and the flu epidemic that swept America taking loved ones away in a matter of days.

There is no admission fee for the Old Hymn Sing. The love offering this year goes to support the Hickman County Senior Citizen Center.

All are welcome.
