The Nouvelet Chamber Choir will present its seventh annual Christmas concerts at 5 p.m. on Saturday, December 17, and 5 p.m. on Sunday, December 18, at White Stone United Methodist Church, 118 Methodist Church Road, White Stone.
The 14-member women’s choir sings sacred seasonal music from the side balconies. However, this year the ensemble will move to the choir lofts to present its final selection, “Peace, Peace” by Rick and Sylvia Powell, said director Brenda Burtner. The selection includes “Silent Night, Holy Night” and the congregation is invited to join the choir.
“It’s a real joy to direct this group,” said Burtner. “The talent, experience and professional musicianship adds up to absolutely gorgeous sounds.
“Many attendees tell us each year they look forward to these concerts. We are very grateful to our audiences for their generous donations which go to community organizations,” Burtner said.
