William Peace University Hosts Concert Performance By Chris Hendricks
Local Musical Talent To Hold Outdoor Performance On Saturday, Sept. 21
At Four-Year Baccalaureate University For Greater Raleigh Community

 RALEIGH, N.C. – William Peace University, a private four-year university located in downtown Raleigh, has announced it will host a concert performance by rock musician Chris Hendricks on Saturday, Sept. 21 at 7p.m. on the University Green, located at 15 E. Peace St. The local musician will perform accompanied by his band members, Mark McKee, Michael Bare, Saul Johnson and Chad Lister. Sponsored by Bad Daddy’s Burger Bar, Which Wich, Dickey’s Barbecue Pit and Tyler’s Restaurant and Taproom, the event is free and open to students, faculty and staff, as well as the greater Raleigh community. This family-friendly event is open to guests of all ages, and Raleigh residents are welcome to bring their children and pets.

Hendricks appeared in August on the campus to present his Breaking Down Barriers program for nearly 400 WPU first year students. Breaking Down Barriers is an anti-bullying initiative that works with area schools to raise awareness about the dangers of bullying and the importance of being true to one’s self. Diagnosed with cerebral palsy at a young age, Hendricks uses his music and life experiences in an effort to inspire others, reaching out to schools, businesses and organizations throughout the country.

Throughout his career, Hendricks has performed at iconic venues across the country, including Cat’s Cradle in Carrboro, N.C., and the Los Angeles House of Blues. His hit song “Noise” was featured at the Louvre Museum in Paris and was chosen as the 2011-2012 season theme song for the National Hockey League’s Carolina Hurricanes and Florida Panthers. The EP that features “Noise” has sold more than 6,000 copies to date. Hendricks’ latest EP, Meant To Survive, is quickly becoming a fan favorite.

“As we kick off the fall 2013 semester and welcome students back to campus, William Peace University is proud to host Chris Hendricks and his band for a live concert for not only students, but the local community to enjoy,” said Debra M. Townsley, Ph.D., president of William Peace University. “Our desire is to make outdoor concerts a regular part of our arts programming and hope that the community will come out to the first concert event to help support Chris and future outdoor community events. Stop by Seaboard Station, pick up dinner and enjoy the evening at WPU.”
