Other selections rounded out this very special and popular children’s concert, which is always free to the public. See the photos and videos on our Facebook page.
Dec. 8 – Doug Hartline and friends Holiday Jazz Concert begins at 4 p.m. The most unique Holiday concert of its type in our surrounding area. You might call it light jazz, or contemporary arrangements. Enjoy seasonal music performed with vibraphone, guitar, bass, drums, and vocals to make for a very pleasant musical experience. Requested donation: $20.
Dec. 15 – The Annual performance of the Messiah presented by the Danbury Music Centre will feature 80 voices and over 20 instruments. The performance beginning at 3pm will be held in our wonderful sanctuary. In the past this performance has filled our sanctuary - both balcony and downstairs. It is free, although a donation will be requested.
Dec. 24 -- Christmas Eve Worship at 7 p.m. Our traditional service of lessons and carols
And of course for Advent and Christmas Eve, there will always be special music, special arrangements of favorite carols and new selections sung by our soloists and chancel choir.
