Christmas Concert sold out!


It was a whirlwind week last week as Symphony of the Mountains performed three holiday concerts around the region. Wednesday evening was “By the Fireside with Symphony of the Mountains” at J.W. Adams Combined School in Pound, VA. It was definitely a full house and we are so grateful to Pro-Art (Bonnie, Kelly, Tony, Phil and friends) for all their hard work to make that concert a huge success.

Saturday saw the Symphony of the Mountains return to Kingsport, TN as we performed the first of two “A Down Home Christmas” concerts. In our insert, we inadvertantly ommitted the roster for the East Tennessee Children’s Choir; a part of the Mountain Empire Children Choral Academy. These children worked incredibly hard to be able to perform “Do You Hear What I Hear?” “We Three Kings of Orient,” “Silent Night,” “Christmas at Home Medley,” “World Anthem,” and “We Wish You A Merry Christmas.”
