Posted on Thursday, November 22, 2012 at 1:56 pm

Area citizens are invited to a holiday concert on Nov. 29 on the Motlow College Moore County campus, according to Motlow music students and their instructor, Dr. David Bethea.

Music will begin at 7 p.m. in Eoff Hall’s Powers Auditorium and will feature the Motlow vocal ensemble and jazz band.

The vocal portion of the concert will include a wide range of music, from American Patriotic pieces to holiday favorites, according to Bethea, who said the audience will be invited to sing along to some numbers. Students in the vocal ensemble are Vaun Justin Lee Baltimore of Unionville; David Gillies of Lynchburg; Rebecca Whitman of Shelbyville; and D’Angelo Brown, Elizabeth Leilani Daniels and Jacoby London, all of Tullahoma.

The jazz band, which includes local professional musicians, also will play a variety of musical numbers.

“I encourage everyone to attend this concert,” said Bethea, who joined the Motlow faculty this semester. “It will be the first of many musical events showcasing not only Motlow’s talent, but also the talent of community members. There will be something for everyone, and since it is the beginning of the holiday season, maybe we can put everyone in the holiday spirit.”

Reservations are not required, and there is no admission charge.
