The Sentinel-Record - - ARTS, ETC. -

First United Methodist Church of Hot Springs will present its an­nual Christ­mas cel­e­bra­tion concert, “A Grand Cen­tral Christ­mas,” at 6 p.m. Fri­day, Dec. 14, in the church’s his­toric sanc­tu­ary at 1100 Cen­tral Ave.

The free concert is open to the pub­lic and will in­clude mu­si­cal per­for­mances by var­i­ous groups from the church’s ex­ten­sive mu­sic min­istry, in­clud­ing the Chan­cel Choir and Sea­sonal Singers, three dif­fer­ent hand­bell en­sem­bles, chil­dren’s choirs, or­gan­ist Lynne Crow, and the Con­neXion Praise Team.

In ad­di­tion to the church’s mu­si­cians, there will be spe­cial guest artists, The Arkansas Brass, and mem­bers of the Fun City Cho­rus, who will be per­form­ing sea­sonal se­lec­tions.

“There will be a ter­rific va­ri­ety of mu­sic and it will all cul­mi­nate with a Christ­mas carol sin­ga­long for the au­di­ence,” a news re­lease said.

“The Hot Springs com­mu­nity is en­cour­aged to at­tend this an­nual Christ­mas ‘gift’ from the church, which con­sis­tently draws a large au­di­ence,” it said. “Come early for seat­ing and park­ing and en­joy an evening of beau­ti­ful mu­sic and fel­low­ship.”
