A benefit Christmas concert will be held at 3 p.m., Saturday, Dec. 15, at St. David’s Episcopal Church. The concert, “An American Village Christmas,” will feature Advent and Christmas hymns and anthems by American composers found in “The Sacred Harp,” “The Southern Harmony,” “The Mennonite Singing Book” and “The Christian Harmony,” along with Appalachian melodies and African-American spirituals.
Like last year, the concert will be sung unaccompanied by a 25-voice choir directed by Richard Lind. A couple of instrumental pieces on piano and saxophone will be interspersed among the choral works.
Admission to the concert is free of charge. However, monetary donations to the Joyce L. Sobel Family Resource Center or nonperishable items for the Friday Harbor Food Bank will be gratefully accepted.
Saint David’s Episcopal Church is located on the corner of Park Street and Marguerite Place in Friday Harbor. For more information, call the church at 360-378-5360.
