MOUNT VERNON — The Knox County Cantata Choir has begun rehearsals for their 2018 Christmas Cantata, “The Song Heard ‘Round the World” by Joseph M. Martin. According to Martin, “every culture in the world has its own Christmas legacy of song,” and this musical celebration of the birth of Christ using music from around the world will help usher in the Season with a message of peace, hope, and love.
Arrangements of “Tiki, Tiki, Pm” and “Gesu Bambino” will be featured along with musical accompaniment by Jessica Overholt, pianist, and Chris Miller, percussionist.
Performances will be Nov. 30 and Dec. 1, 2018 at the Memorial Theater. Tickets will be available from any choir member or by calling 740-427-1253.
