LYNCHBURG - The Motlow State Community College Music Department is excited to present a pair of holiday concerts featuring The Motlow Vocal Ensemble and The Motlow Community Band. Performances will be in Powers Auditorium in Eoff Hall on the Moore County campus on Thursday, Dec. 6, at 7 p.m., with a matinee performance on Sunday, Dec. 9, at 2 p.m. Refreshments will be served beginning an hour before each concert; reservations are recommended.
Music Director Dr. David Bethea has chosen songs that will appeal to every age. Students and community band members will perform a wide variety of musical styles and holiday standards, and the Vocal Ensemble will be singing holiday pieces from the distant past to the present.
"Each year we try to put on a show to remember, and this show is no exception,' said Bethea. "The Choir and the Band have worked hard and are ready to entertain."
Special guests will include Christmas Fairy and Winter Fairy, Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, the Grinch, and more. Even though this time of year is a very busy time for Santa, he will be making an appearance as well! Santa and other characters will be available during intermission for pictures and autographs.
