Come join other HYP members for a HYP'pening event! Mix and mingle at this social event, hosted by the Hickory University City Commission. This concert is free and open to the public.

The Spring Fling Concert at Lenoir-Rhyne University begins on a stage in front of Shuford Memorial Gymnasium on Stasavich Place, and people are encouraged to bring chairs and blankets to enjoy the music. 20/20 will start at 8 p.m. and Holy Ghost Tent Revival will begin at 9 p.m.

“It’s exciting to see ideas and projects come together quickly on our new commission that is focused on bringing students and the community together,” said University City Commission Chairman Ryan Edwards.  “The concert is part of LRU’s annual Spring Fling, and this year it has a new twist because the community is invited to join in on the fun.  The concert is a family-friendly event with one of the area’s favorite local bands 20/20 opening up for Holy Ghost Tent Revival, a group traveling across the country on college campuses.”

20/20 is a classic rock cover band playing mostly 70’s, 80’s, 90’s party music, and more. To learn more about 20/20 go to www.2020rockband.com. Holy Ghost Tent Revival is a six-piece rock & roll band from North Carolina, driven by an exhilarating live show that has uplifted audiences since the band formed in 2007. For the past seven years, they have been honing their unique sound, which NPR describes as that of a “soul-rock horn band that recalls 60s and 70s classic-rock influences such as The Band and The Flying Burrito Brothers, contemporary indie-rock acts like Dr. Dog, and New Orleans brass-band jazz.” To learn more about Ghost Tent Revival, go to www.holyghosttentrevival.com.

The purpose of this board is to deepen and broaden the relationship between Lenoir-Rhyne University, the City of Hickory, and their students and residents. Their focus will be on growing the student body's presence and interaction in the community and increasing the young adult population in Hickory, while enhancing the collegiate atmosphere and promoting school pride throughout the community.
