Enjoy ‘Holiday Harmony’ Dec. 7, 12 with Capital Chordsmen

Join Tallahassee’s award-winning barbershop chorus and energetic director Greg Hilliard, Jr., for The Capital Chordsmen’s 10th annual pair of Holiday Harmony concerts at the Tallahassee Senior Center, 1400 North Monroe St., on Thursday, Dec. 7 and Tuesday, Dec. 12.

Both concerts, 7 to 8:15 p.m., titled What’s This? A Holiday Show, feature the full chorus, six men’s and women’s barbershop quartets, and a “very large quartet” ensemble. Join The Chordsmen as we tell the story of a friend who has gotten the wrong idea about Christmas. Follow his journey as we deck the halls of the holidays by singing popular music from “Winter Wonderland” to “Here Comes Santa Claus.” We finish with The Story of Christmas told through the traditional Biblical narrative—lifted by the lyrics and stirring harmonies of “Lo How Rose E’er Blooming,” “Silent Night,” “Go Tell It on the Mountain” and other favorites. A rousing audience sing-along guarantees that you’ll catch the holiday spirit at both family-friendly shows. Tickets, $12.50 general admission. $10 seniors. $5 students, will go fast, so order them promptly at www.capitalchordsmen.org or call a favorite barbershopper. You may also reserve tickets by calling (850) 570-3148.

 

FCI seeks faith volunteers

Franklin Correctional Institution is is search of volunteers to assist with its faith-based programs.

Chaplain Phil Davis said that FCI is looking for either clergy or religious leaders to facilitate morning or afternoon programs at the Carrabelle facility, 1760 County Road 67.

“What we’re looking for is two fold,” said Davis. “Any programs they have that they believe would help in the development and preparation of inmates to change their lives, we’re open to review and we may accept their program.

“We’re also looking for facilitators for existing programs such as Experiencing God, Believers’ Victory and The Most Excellent Way,” he said.
