The 23rd annual Living Christmas Tree Festival Chorus will perform the “International Carol Suites” by Mark Hayes the weekend of December 6. Under the direction of Leticia vanVuuren, this all-volunteer community chorus will sing at Thomaston Baptist Church on Friday at 7:00PM, Saturday and Sunday at 4:00PM. These carol suites weave together familiar and lesser-known carols in an exciting and joyous celebration of the holiday season.
This event is free of charge, while donations to assist toward the cost of the performance are appreciated. For more information, please contact the Thomaston Baptist Church at 354-6706.
