Greenbrier Valley Chorale to perform Christmas concert

The Greenbrier Valley Chorale will once again sing in the holidays with a concert of beautiful music of the season. The concert, titled “Sing We Noel,” will feature familiar Christmas favorites and some newer works that relate the story of the nativity in styles ranging from lullabies to rumba rhythms.

The concert will be 3 p.m. Dec. 8 at Carnegie Hall, 105 Church St., Lewisburg. Reserved seats will be available, and tickets are available for purchase now at the Carnegie Hall box office or through the Carnegie Hall website, www.carnegiehallwv.com.

Tickets are $12 for adults. Students in grades K-12 will be admitted free but must have a ticket to assure a seat.

Visitors to today’s Lewisburg Holiday Open House will get a sneak preview of the concert when the Chorale performs 2:30 p.m. at the Greenbrier Valley Visitors Center. There is no charge for this performance.

The group also will perform at 2 p.m. Dec. 22 at Tamarack in Beckley as part of the Sunday at Two series.

The Greenbrier Valley Chorale has excited audiences with its musical excellence and versatility for more than 20 years. The ensemble is conducted by Barbara Lutz and accompanied by Teresa Bryant. The singers are volunteers ranging from advanced high school students to retirees. They hail from Greenbrier, Monroe and Raleigh counties in West Virginia and Alleghany County, Va.

More information about the Chorale can be found at www.greenbriervalleychorale.org.
