For many, it would not be a proper Christmas in Cedaredge without the annual holiday concert at the Pioneer Town Chapel of the Cross.
This year's two performances featured favorite holiday music performed by voice and instrument.
Instrumental duets by Jeff and Jenny Wise on trumpet and clarinet were a new addition to this year's traditionally vocal ensembles, and they added a new dimension to the Chapel's holiday sound celebration.
Selections performed at the 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. events included well-known Christmas carols and sing-alongs, holiday favorites including popular movie themes music, solo vocals, and of course the traditional and much-loved sacred music that tells the Christmas story and reminds of the Christmas message.
The Cedaredge Octet performed vocal selections. The group is comprised of Al Smith, Bob Wear, Dan Hawkins, Bob Clark, Dave DeVinny, John Shriver, Anna Maria Turilli and Nancy Carlson.
Jean Tramp also performed vocal selections. Debbie Day and Jo Smith performed on bells.
Accompaniment on piano was provided by Sharon Clark and on the Chapel organ by Vernette Mackley.blog comments powered by Disqus
