Lake Junaluska, NC – If walls could talk, then surely those at Stuart Auditorium could sing.

For 100 years this historic auditorium at Lake Junaluska has resonated with the rhythms, sounds and songs of  various musicians, choirs and vocalists from across the globe, delivering their message of Christian love through the one universal language—music.

And resonate it will during Centennnial Homecoming Week, June 30-July 7, as the Lake celebrates a century of Christian hospitality with concerts by the Lake Junaluska Singers, former Lake Junaluska Singers and Haywood County bluegrass favorites Balsam Range.
