Atlanta, GA – Christmas joy and excitement will fill the air during Peachtree Presbyterian Church’s Annual Children’s Christmas Concert on Sunday, December 2nd, at 4:00pm in the Main Sanctuary. This presentation will feature singers and bell ringers ranging in age from 4 to 12 years old. The Cherub Choir (4 years old – Pre 1st grade), Praise Singers (1st – 3rd grades) and Kingdom Singers (4th – 6th grades) will perform many holiday favorites with the voices of angels. The Praise Ringers (2nd – 3rd grades) and Peachtree Bells (4th – 6th grades) will add a special element of rhythmic brightness to this celebration of musical innocence.
The choruses are comprised of nearly 150 singers with over 80 participants being from the Buckhead area. The remainder of singers and bell ringers are from throughout the metropolitan Atlanta area.
“It is amazing to watch these young singers and musicians go from being unsure about themselves to confident performers within a short period of time” says Chris Barry, Director of Youth and Children’s Music. “They really enjoy making music that is full of excitement and wonder” adds Barry.
“The Christmas season is a special time. But, even more so for our young singers and bell ringers” feels Heather Ellison, Peachtree Presbyterian Church’s Director of Youth and Children’s Bells. “Their faces seem to beam with pride when they suddenly realize that the musical sounds they are hearing are actually coming from their voices and hands. It is truly inspiring” adds Mrs. Ellison.
Director of Music Mary Hoffman sees this event as being the initial step for many aspiring performers. “For many, this is their first foray into performing in front of a large audience of friends, family, parishioners and the community. Many of our most prolific adult performers fondly look back to their first holiday concert as being the beginning of an eventual professional music career. It is a true blessing to be a part of such a heavenly event”.
This concert is free to the public.
