Join in holiday caroling and a concert by the strings section of the Western Carolina Civic Orchestra on Dec. 15.
Caroling will begin at 6:30 p.m. on the steps of the Jackson County Public Library Complex in Sylva, which will be lined with luminary bags decorated by children during the course of the fall at the library.
If weather is wet or too cold, carolers will move into the Atrium of the building. All singers and would-be singers in the community are encouraged to participate.
“We would like to make this the start of a tradition in the community,” said organizer Cathy Arps.
The caroling will be followed at 7 p.m. by a concert in the Community Room by the strings section of the Western Carolina Civic Orchestra.
The Civic Orchestra will play several classical and holiday favorites, including the Brook Green Suite, the Corelli Christmas Concerto, the Toy Symphony, and the Carol of the Bells. Children are encouraged to bring a small toy drum, trumpet, or rattle to “help” when the Toy Symphony is played.
