A Word from a Singer...

15 years of bringing a joyful noise to a community. Years of bringing singers and musicians together to share the music of the Christmas season and the reason for the season, which is celebrating the birth of our Savior.

Nelson Miller had a dream and the dream was to create a cantata that would bring residents together to raise monies for food pantries in the area.

The cantata this year will be "I Hear the Prophet Callin'". by Pepper Choplin. This cantata is a lot of fun and incorporates both traditional carols and newly composed anthems that visit the timeless Christmas story with fresh insight.

As one of the singers in the cantata having only missed one year, I appreciate Nelson's efforts. I also appreciate the men and women that make a commitment each year to attend the practices, who make the cookies for the reception afterward and I am not alone when I mention that we appreciate the audience that comes to the cantata. It is bringing a community together that makes a difference.
