WILKESBORO — Kick off the holiday season at the Walker Center with “Christmas with Ernie Haase & Signature Sound” on Dec. 1.

From its formation in 2003, Ernie Haase has built Signature Sound into one of the most popular and beloved quartets in all of Southern Gospel music. The group has traveled the world, offering energy, excitement, and encouragement through its powerful brand of gospel music. This show will feature EHSS singing Christmas hymns and traditional Christmas songs.

From concerts in Latvia and India to South Africa and New Zealand, events all around North America, TV appearances on ESPN with NASCAR, and multiple NBA appearances singing our National Anthem, Signature Sound is a world-renowned quartet that spans a wide variety of genres and cultures.

As group founder, Haase is a creative, hard-working tenor whose early roots with the unforgettable and legendary Southern gospel quartet The Cathedrals helped begin his dream to form a powerhouse group of his own. Along with many appearances through the years with the widely regarded Gaither Homecoming Tour, his goal was soon accomplished and then some as EHSS quickly gained an international platform in gospel music, received a Grammy nomination, and GMA Dove Award.

Showtime is 7:30 p.m. and doors will open at 7 p.m. This performance is sponsored by Brame Huie Pharmacy.

A limited number of tickets are available for this performance. Advance purchase tickets for this performance are $39 and $37 for seniors; individual ticket prices increase by $5 on the day of show.
