Calling all singing voices for Community Christmas Chorus
The Mattie Kelly Arts Foundation will present the 20th Annual Sounds of the Season at 7 p.m. Friday, Dec. 4, at Village Baptist Church in Destin. All residents and winter visitors are invited to sing in the community chorus.
The Community Chorus is open to all members of the community and are invited to attend rehearsals on Wednesday evenings in the choir rooms at 7 p.m. at Destin United Methodist and 7:15 p.m. at Village Baptist Church. A group rehearsal will be held from 9 a.m. to noon Saturday, Nov. 14, at Village Baptist Church. A final rehearsal will be held at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 3, at Village Baptist Church.
This holiday concert features seven Destin churches collaborating with sacred and Christmas classics from Coastline Calvary Chapel, Destin United Methodist, Destin Assembly of God, First Baptist of Destin, Grace Lutheran, Shoreline and Village Baptist churches. Each church will perform on stage with special musical soloists, quartets and ensembles.
Admission is a donation of an unwrapped child’s toy to be distributed among the participating church’s outreach ministries to provide a brighter Christmas for families in need during the holidays. A love offering at intermission will benefit the Mattie Kelly Arts Foundation’s “All Kinds of Art," a children’s educational outreach program inspiring students and special needs children in Okaloosa and Walton counties.
