Midland's Men of Music Will Perform at First Congregational Church – December 11
The Men of Music will present their annual Christmas concert “Christmas Time Is Here!” at First Congregational Church on December 11, at 3:00 p.m.
There is no admission charge, but a free will offering will be collected at intermission to help a charitable organization in Saginaw. Proceeds totaling $92,000 have supported local groups over the years. Last year, for example, the East Side Soup Kitchen received a donation from concert proceeds.
Grace Marra, director of the chorus, has developed a family friendly concert with a diversity of selections including White Christmas, Silent Night, and Christmas Time is Here. She has arranged five of the seventeen songs. Arrangements of familiar melodies by Tchaikovsky, Pachelbel, and others, are also included on the program.
In addition, the program will include selections by the ever-popular Dirty Dozen ensemble, a small group of singers from within The Men of Music. Jantz Black, organist of Midland’s First United Methodist Church, will accompany the program.
The Men of Music will perform in the Midland Center for the Arts “Christmas Extravaganza” along with other MCFTA choruses on December 17th at 8:00 PM. Tickets are available for this concert at the MCFTA and cost $15. Tickets may be obtained directly from the MCFTA box office and http://www.mcfta.org/ The MOM site is www.menofmusic.org.
