WAKE FOREST — The Gospel Jubilators will cap off the fourth annual installment of “Wake Forest Unplugged…Get Connected” Sunday afternoon, with a free concert at E. Carroll Joyner Park, 701 Harris Road. The concert will take place in the amphitheater from 5 to 7 p.m.
Using “only the instruments God gave them,” the Gospel Jubilators have been performing for nearly 40 years. This all-male vocal group performs a cappella music with rare purity and soul, highlighting vocal traditions of the golden age of ’30s and ’40s gospel.
Prior to the Sept. 8 concert the Wake Forest Recreation Advisory Board will offer area residents the opportunity to participate in a slew of organized games and activities as part of “Wake Forest Unplugged…Get Connected.”
This free, family-friendly event offers Wake Forest-area residents an opportunity to “disconnect” from cell phones, computers, and other electronic devices and “reconnect” with their community, friends, and family.
Games will include sack and relay races, corn hole, and miniature golf. The festivities are scheduled to get underway at 4 p.m. in the vicinity of the Walker Garden.
In the event of rain, the concert will be moved inside the Flaherty Community Center Gymnasium, 1226 N. White St. Weather-related updates will be available by calling the Wake Forest Weather Line at 919-435-9569.
