Family Winter Concert
There’s another chance to hear The Children’s Voice Chorus at its second annual concert at 5 p.m. Dec. 16 in Davis Chapel at Old Cutler Presbyterian Church, 14401 Old Cutler Rd. in Palmetto Bay.
The community-based chorus, comprised of children ages 7 to 16, was launched in the fall of 2011. The winter concert will include music from the classics to jazz and pop, and will be based around the themes of hope, faith, love and unity, said founder and artistic director Jamie Sutta.
“The choristers are beyond excited to share their gifts with the community,” she said. “Our goal is to bring in children of all cultural and economic backgrounds and teach them about coming together as one to create beautiful music.”
Tickets are $7 for adults and $5 for children, and can be purchased at the door. For more, or to inquire about audition opportunities for your son or daughter, visit www.childrensvoicechorus.org or write to email@example.com, or call 786-216-7003.
