Victorian Christmas Concert

First Baptist Church of Franklin
1041 Liberty St.
Christmas is a time of wonder, celebration, and joy as we share in the commemoration of the advent of Jesus Christ. One of the most heart-warming aspects of Christmas is the amazing music that fills the air. On Saturday, December 15th, First Baptist Church will be hosting a free Victorian Christmas Concert featuring both classical and sacred Christmas music.
The concert will be held in the sanctuary of the First Baptist Church, a beautiful example of Victorian architecture with massive stained glass windows, murals, and an Estey pipe organ. This setting will add wonder to the evening which will also feature a Steinway concert grand piano generously provided by the event sponsors.
The concert will feature local vocalists Brianna Steves and Kevin Downey (winner of A Taste of Talent 2011), guitarist Max Schang, pianist and trumpeter Nicholas Nasibyan, and pianists Erin Clarahan and Dennis Geib. There will be additional performances by sensational young pianists Joey Babcanec, Will Heller, Kevin O’Brien, and Jonah Brown, as well as string pieces by Tom Karg, Diana Downey, and Nicole Powell, and a performance by “Whimsy” of Sweet Adelines International.
The concert is free to the public and donations will be accepted to continue the renovations of the adjoining Miller Auditorium and to support future concerts and plays featuring local artists that will become a regular part of the outreach of First Baptist Church.
