Mountain Voices Christmas Concert - December 8 at FUMC at 7 pm

It’s that time of year when we embrace our “favorite things” to help us remember the joys of Christmases past in an endeavor to help spread holiday cheer in a meaningful way today. Most often, we feel overwhelmed and bombarded by the busyness of the season so finding those calming moments of reflection are true gifts which recharge us and lift our spirits. Celebrating all things Christmas, Mountain Voices community chorus will perform their Christmas Concert on Thursday, December 8 beginning at 7 pm at First United Methodist Church, Franklin NC (66 Harrison Avenue). From jazzy arrangements to big band orchestral scores, from Irving Berlin’s movie themes to sounds of the 60’s, from bluegrass tunes to favorite carols with an African twist, from gospel songs to traditional anthems – this year’s concert represents all genres of music and is sure to bring holiday cheer!

Mountain Voices, a 50-voice mixed community chorus with members from western NC and northeast GA, was formed in 2015 and is under the direction of Beverly Barnett. Chorus members meet year-round to prepare for summer and winter concerts. Mary Pittman is the piano accompanist and other local instrumentalists will join her to complete the band (flute, cello, violin/fiddle, bass, guitar, drums, concert bells, percussion, and brass: trumpets, trombones, and tuba).

Hope you can join us for an evening of familiar songs – a mountain tradition you don’t want to miss! The concert is FREE (donations are appreciated to offset the cost of music and are tax deductible as allowed by the IRS for this 501 (c) 3 organization).
