Madison Singers concert is scheduled for Sunday

RICHMOND — The Madison Singers, a program of the Richmond Area Arts Council, have been working since September to present their “What Sweeter Music” concert on Sunday, Dec. 2, at 3 p.m. The concert will be presented in the sanctuary of the First Christian Church, which will be beautifully decorated for the holidays.

The Singers will perform a number of Yuletide songs appropriate for the season. Among them is the beautiful “What Sweeter Music” composed by well-known English composer, John Rutter.

Others are special arrangements of “Angels we Have Heard on High,” “The First Noel,” “Still, Still, Still,” “Veni, veni,” “Emmanuel,” “Gitanjali Chants,” “And the Glory” from Handel’s “Messiah,” “The Christmas Song,” “Masters in This Hall” and other familiar and traditional holiday music.

The group always looks forward to this concert and hopes to bring the Christmas spirit through beautiful choral music to all who attend.

“We have had several productive rehearsals as the Madison Singers and we are getting to know each other in preparation for our first concert of the season,” said Dr. Richard Waters, the Singers' director. “We have a wide variety of musical styles represented on our program, so there will hopefully be something for everyone.”

Waters is director of choral activities at Eastern Kentucky University.

The Singers' accompanist is Linda Hensley, organist at First Christian Church.

Concert tickets are $10 and may be purchased at the Richmond Area Arts Center or at the door on the afternoon of the concert.

The Arts Center, at corner of Lancaster Avenue and Water Street, is open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

  • ‘Thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff comfort me’

    The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.
    (Psalm 23:1-6)

  • Katie-Rollins.jpg Paint Lick community Christmas tree lighting is Friday, Nov. 30

    Hello readers, it is a chilly, yet cloudy Monday morning, this Nov. 19. As I look out into the street here above the Friends of Paint Lick building, I see the most incredible little tree that sits alone, just waiting to be lighted for the Paint Lick community Christmas celebration. The small spruce was planted by two gardeners from Baldwin Farms, friends of Hal and Yvonne Davis.

  • Waco Pentecostal Tabernacle fundraiser Saturday Hi!

    Here we are in fall again!

    How do so many leaves fall off a tree and get scattered in so many different directions in one day?

    How many more leaves are still on the tree that will turn and fall and be scattered in the days to come?

    It almost makes one want to wait until all the leaves are off the tree before picking up a rake or broom. That might be better than raking and sweeping each day for many, many days to come.

  • Paula Jones Roadside clean-up set for Saturday How is everyone’s week going? I hope that everyone is having a great one. We have once again had a little mixture of weather, cool, rain, warm and sunshine. One can never tell what the March weather will be. Have you noticed the buttercups blooming? I also saw some bushes and trees blooming. I even saw a redbud tree blooming! There is such beauty in spring as it comes to life.

  • Take care of your community: Don’t litter! Hello readers. The late evening sun is shining through an upstairs window from where I’m sitting and I notice the brilliance of an outer ring that seems to flow toward the creek as it (sun) begins the journey into the night. I do love to just look and enjoy all we have on this Earth to appreciate. It’s always the little things that seem to make up the circle of life. Like the bright yellow daffodils blooming in Mrs. Callahan’s yard and the many buttercups alongside the road — the little things.
