Pea Ridge National Military Park will host a special concert by the Conway Women’s Chorus on Sunday, December 7 at 1:00 P.M. in the visitor center auditorium. The 45 minute acappella program is music of the Civil War period including favorite selections from the works of Stephen Foster as well as songs sung in both the North and South. To share the story of the Civil War from a woman’s perspective, each member of the group portrays a woman who actually lived during those war-torn years. Each woman will dress as the character they represent and some will share their stories including farm wives, a woman who disguised herself as a man in order to fight, and the wife of a South Carolina plantation owner. Conway Women’s Chorus, directed by Joan Hanna, is part of Faulkner Academy of Arts, a non-profit organization.

Come join us for a fun and entertaining program.
