    “By the Fireside” Holiday Concerts Are A Family Tradition
    Kingsport, TN – As the weather turns colder and shopping becomes a battlefield, it can be hard to remember the beauty of the season. Cornelia Laemmli Orth and Symphony of the Mountains invite you to refill your Yuletide cheer as we present our beloved holiday concerts, “By the Fireside” on Saturday, December 1, 2018 at 3:00pm at the Toy F. Reid Eastman Employee Center in Kingsport, TN and Sunday, December 2, 2018 at 3:00pm at the Southwest Virginia Higher Education Center in Abingdon, VA.
    This annual family favorite is overflowing with festive carols and sacred holiday selections. Repertoire includes favorites such as:
    • Angel’s Carol
    • O Holy Night
    • Christmas Festival
    • Brightest and Best
    • Santa Claus is Coming to Town
    • A World of Joy
    Performing with our fully professional orchestra and Voices of the Mountains choral group this year will be several special guests; over one hundred students from Mountain Empire Children’s Choral Academy - a regional youth choir, 40 students from Academy of Strings – an regional string school from Johnson City, TN, and returning to the stage this year, over 30 children from Mountain Mission School Choir – an award winning children’s choir from Grundy, VA. Paired with a special visit from Santa and an indoor snow flurry and it’s sure to help spread holiday cheer.
    Join the performers and Santa after the concert for our traditional cookie and punch reception sponsored by our Women’s Symphony Committee. There will be an opportunity to take a picture with Santa and tell him what you want for Christmas. Just make sure you’ve been good!
