The Second Baptist Church of Suffield is pleased to announce its Annual Community Christmas Concert. This annual event will take place Saturday, December 14, at 3 p.m. at the church at 100 N. Main Street – so plan to come for some fantastic music and a great time with your neighbors!
The Community Christmas Concert has become a town tradition throughout the past several years and will once again be coordinated by the Director of Music Ministries, Evelyne Battle. Expect additional local musicians, vocalists, and school groups to share their talents with the town during this event to celebrate the Christmas season. While there is no cost to attend the concert, there will be a free-will offering to benefit the Fuel Bank administered by the Suffield Community Aid.
2019 marks the sixteenth year Second Baptist has hosted the Community Concert. Attendees will be treated to performances from a wide variety of musical groups and individuals of all ages from Suffield and the surrounding area. The musical line-up changes every year making every concert unique and special. What has remained constant is the amazing music talent in Suffield and the surrounding communities.
The Second Baptist Sanctuary Choir, Handbell Choir, and the SBC Singers will be among the musical groups featured in the concert this year. They will be joined by special guest groups including performers from the various Suffield schools. Jean Aldrich Jones will accompany the Second Baptist vocal choirs.
As always, the most popular group to be featured has always been the assembled audience! It has become a tradition for everyone to join in and sing familiar carols throughout the concert. Very few – if any – concerts feature “The Twelve Days of Christmas” as performed at this event. Anyone who has attended this show can attest to the enthusiasm and joy this especially interactive piece promotes – you need to come experience it for yourself.
The community spirit continues after the concert when all are invited to a reception of light refreshments in the Church’s Fellowship Hall. The reception offers everyone the opportunity of visiting with each other as well as the various performers. Come join your friends and neighbors for an afternoon of Christmas music, cheer, friendship, and fun.
