Spring Sing participants award nearly $7K to local charities

April 16, 2022 | Spring Sing |

This weekend, students, faculty and production crew members came together to perform Spring Sing 2022: “Moments.” Since 1974, Searcy has been home to this musical extravaganza showcasing the talent and spirit of Harding. This year, more than 19 social clubs were represented in seven club performances, and ensemble cast members and hosts and hostesses performed, accompanied by the Harding University Jazz Band. After two years of socially distanced seating, the Benson Auditorium was finally open at full capacity for each of the four performances. Each club performance was judged, and results were tallied and announced at the end of Saturday night’s performance. Each club donated their performance and their winnings to a local charity of their choice. Since 2005, Spring Sing has donated over $100,000 to local charities on behalf of participating Harding social clubs. In total, clubs awarded $6,600 to their chosen charities this year.
