Wishes and Candles - A FREE Community Christmas Concert
Supporting Light Up Gwinnett With Kindness Initiative to Celebrate County’s Bicentennial
The Sugar Hill Choir of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints presents its 14th annual community Christmas concert. Themed Wishes and Candles, the performance will support the December launch of Light Up Gwinnett With Kindness initiative helping to celebrate the final weeks of the county’s bicentennial.
The concert will be held Dec. 8 and 9 at 7 p.m. at the Latter-day Saints Church located at 4833 Suwanee Dam Road, adjacent to North Gwinnett High School.
The musical performance, featuring a 71-voice choir and 20-piece orchestra, will include traditional as well as unfamiliar Christmas songs that promise to become new family favorites. The concert will be highlighted by a narrative that will bring to light the literary works of Washington Irving, credited with bringing the merry to Christmas by introducing many beloved traditions enjoyed today in America.
The concert theme supports the new annual initiative, Light Up Georgia With Kindness, encouraging acts of kindness to be performed Dec. 1-24. Lit Light Up bags will be given to concert attendees, along with two additional bags and info to give to neighbors, to help build awareness and have communities work together to create an unbroken chain of luminaries for Building Together the Pathway Lit by Kindness on Dec. 24.
