Hanceville, AL — Wallace State Community College’s Fine and Performing Arts Programs will host the fourth annual Spring Under the Stars concert on Thursday, April 25 at 6:30 p.m. in front of the Burrow Center for the Fine and Performing Arts.

Spring Under the Stars will feature performances by all Fine and Performing Arts programs including the Jazz Band, Concert Band, Concert Choir, Wallace State Singers, Allegro Dance Theatre, Percussion Ensemble and Theatre. Some of the highlights will include performances from the Wallace State Singers “That 70s Show” and the Wallace State Theatre’s “The Lightning Thief.”

“We are very excited to be hosting the fourth Spring Under the Stars,” said Ricky Burks, director of the Jazz Band and chair of the Fine and Performing Arts program at Wallace State. “We first started this event in 2021 as an outdoor performance to maintain social distancing, but it was such a hit that we have continued it yearly since. It is a fun evening for students to showcase what they have been practicing all semester and for the community to come enjoy our campus.”

Admission to Spring Under the Stars is free, but spectators should bring lawn chairs or blankets for seating. Bring along your appetite also, as food trucks including Augusta’s, Farmhouse Coffee Co., The Street Kitchen and Frios Gourmet Pops will be on hand to offer refreshments.

In the event of rain, the concert will be moved inside the Burrow Center.
