Christmas by the Fireside Concert

The fourth annual Christmas by the Fireside concert is Sunday evening, December 15 at 7:00 pm in Whitlock Music Center. The Greenville College Concert Band shares an old fashioned musical event that will set a nostalgic tone for your Advent and Christmas season. Come a little early to explore the nativity scene display featuring a variety of crèches from band members’ personal collections. Emeritus faculty member Dr. Dan Jensen will once again narrate the concert from his chair by the fire. Share the season’s cherished music, including traditional carols as well as fun Christmas songs, and savor the vivid imagery of a scene from Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol. Be sure to bring your whole family out for this memorable event, enjoy special post-concert refreshments by Robert and Vicki Ellsworth and Huddle House, including a traditional goody bag just for the kids. Savor the sparkling sounds of Christmas, sing along with carols, and settle in for a warm Christmas by the Fireside. The concert will last just over an hour, and admission to both events is free and open to the public.
