The Big Sandy Singers, the elite, student singing ensemble from Big Sandy Community and Technical College (BSCTC) performed at Dollywood on Friday, Aug. 14 at Pigeon Forge, Tn. The Singers were chosen, through an audition process, to perform at the park and entertained crowds during a show where they represented Big Sandy Community and Technical College and the state of Kentucky. The crowd was wowed by the Singers version of My Old Kentucky Home, an a capella, six part harmony piece.
During their trip to Tennessee, the Singers also performed at Chartbuster Caf and at the Deep Springs Baptist Church in Dandridge, Tn.
