The Little Match Girl Passion
is a stunning musical work of art. It tells the Hans Christian Andersen story of a young girl forced to sell matches for food during the holiday season in Paris, France.
It occurred to me that presenting this work immediately after Thanksgiving as we move into the Christmas holiday season would be timely as we reflect on the blessings in our own lives.
We have assembled an extraordinary cast of vocalists and musicians for The Little Match Girl Passion
. The work will be Act 1
of our concert. Act 2
will feature our talented performers in sensational arrangements of beloved Christmas tunes from a multitude of genres that will bring down the house!
This family friendly concert is for everyone but we specifically recommend that children be 10 years or older. Seating is limited and reservations are required so please RSVP on this site for the 6pm performance. This will be an evening of artistry and joy.
While there is no charge to attend, we will gratefully accept donations to fund this and other concerts hosted by Simpsonwood UMC. Please donate at this link: www.littlematchgirldonate.com
Thank you for your support of classical music in Peachtree Corners!
