LYNCHBURG, Tenn. — The Motlow State Community College music department is excited to present the 2016 Holiday Concert in early December in Powers Auditorium on the Moore County campus.

The concert will feature The Motlow Vocal Ensemble and The Motlow Community Band. The students and the community members will be performing a wide variety of musical styles and holiday standards. The vocal ensemble will be singing holiday pieces from the recent past as well as pieces from long ago. The opening concert will be Thursday, Dec. 1, at 7 p.m., with refreshments being served at 6 p.m.

The matinee performance will be Sunday, Dec. 4, at 3 p.m., with refreshments served at 2 p.m. Music Director Dr. David Bethea has chosen songs that will appeal to everyone of every age. “We’re hoping the concerts will put you in the holiday spirit,” said Bethea. “It’s going to be a show to remember.”

During the concert, several different characters will be making appearances: Elsa, Anna, Kristoff, and Olaf from the much-loved movie, Frozen; Rudolph-the-Red-Nosed Reindeer, Cindy Lou Who and the Grinch.

Flying in from out of town will be Santa Claus!
