The annual free community Christmas concert by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints Church (Mormons) near Suwanee will be called "Keep the Light of Christmas" in 2011
The event will be Saturday and Sunday (Dec. 10-11) at the church, 4833 Suwanee Dam Road, Sugar Hill, near North Gwinnett High.
Drawing attendees from all over metro Atlanta who have made the concert part of their holiday traditions, this year’s performance will feature a variety of music including traditional Christmas songs and some new ones that are guaranteed to be a crowd pleaser.
“One of the purposes of our concerts is to give families a chance to experience live music in person at the affordable price of free,” said Suwanee resident Kimberly Lowry, one of the directors of the choir this season along with Shelly Birch, also of Suwanee, and Joe Pridgen of Sugar Hill, in a news release. “We’re excited to continue this musical tradition each year for our communities.”
The choir has participated in key events in the area, such as Atlanta’s Festival of Trees, Lilburn’s Veteran’s Day event, Norcross’ July patriotic celebration, Suwanee’s Memorial Day weekend concert, and Sugar Hill’s Fall Festival and Lighting of the Christmas Tree.
