The Foodbank’s 15th. Annual Festival of Carols fundraising choral/orchestra concerts under the direction of John Leggett are quickly approaching. These concerts will prove to be filled with beautiful music to prepare you for the holiday season. Yours truly will open the concerts with Handel’s Eternal Source of Light Divine from “Ode for the Birthday of Queen Anne” for voice and trumpet solo.

We had our first rehearsal with the orchestra and I’m always amazed at the talent of these young musicians. You will have two opportunities to attend these not to be missed performances. Saturday, November 22nd. at 7 p.m. and Sunday November 23rd. at 3 p.m. at Grace Fellowship, 8040 South Highway 49, Jackson, CA. Last years concerts raised $10,000 for the Foodbank’s much needed coffers. The concerts are free and a donation will be accepted during the performances.
