A song was heard at Christmas...To wake the midnight sky: A saviour's birth, and peace on earth, And praise to God on high. The angels sang at Christmas...With all the hosts above, And still we sing the newborn King...His glory and his love.

A Holiday Concert in Leland

Sunday, December 22, 2013

You are welcome to come in from the cold at 5:30 pm. Santa arrives for photos and a jolly good time at 6:00 pm. The concert will start at 7:00 pm.

The concert will be held at The Old Art Building, 111 S. Main St., Leland.

Tickets $12

Kids age 12 and under are Free

Snug in a river bend lined with flowers, Leland's Old Art Building stands within shouting distance of Main St., but far enough back that a first-time visitor passing by may not notice it. But I am sure you will be driving slow to the concert, since the roads will be icy and with snow.

With its white frame face, dark green trim, and classic small-pane windows, it could be an early 1900s school or meeting hall in any number of small rural villages throughout the country. But to the thousands of residents and long-time visitors who come back year after year, the Old Art Building is Leland - in much the same way that Fishtown is Leland. It's a welcome home sign and a touchstone. Its wood floors and walls, the fieldstone fireplace and the curved wooden stage all echo sounds of dramatic readings, dancers' steps, clattering keys of an upright piano, and the long-ago voices of summer.

Jingle bells Batman smells, Robin laid an egg...remember that one? The voices of winter will not consist of funny-ha-ha's like this, but you can look forward traditional Christmas music with a twist.

Of their many events in the winter time, The Old Art Building will be hosting local musicians, Miriam Pico, Blake Elliott, The Accidentals, Steve Leaf & The Ex Pats, Sierra Creamer, Mary Sue Wilkinson, Matthew Mansfield and E Minor.

Christmas is forever, not just for one day, for loving, sharing, giving are not to put away; like bells and lights and tinsel, in some box upon a shelf, the good you do for others is good you do yourself.

This is a kid friendly event, so bring the whole family!
