NOVA-Alexandria music ensembles to play Holiday Concert

December 3, 2013

Living Legends of Alexandria nominees celebrated

What:
Celebrate the holiday season listening to much-beloved favorites such as “Deck the Halls” and “Jingle Bells” at this year’s Holiday Concert on the Alexandria Campus of Northern Virginia Community College.

The musical event will feature the NOVA Community Chorus, the NOVA Alexandria Jazz Ensemble and the Alexandria Band. Other songs to be performed include “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas” and “Baby, It’s Cold Outside.” Selections from Franz Joseph Haydn's “Mass in Time of War” will also be performed and the evening will be capped by an audience sing-along.

Attendees will also be introduced to the 2014 Living Legends of Alexandria nominees during the evening. The initiative is an on-going not-for-profit photo-documentary project to identify, honor, and chronicle the people making current history in Alexandria. The 2014 Legends will be selected later this month and honored early next year at the annual Meet the Legend Reception.

When:
The concert will take place Tuesday, Dec. 10. A reception to greet the Living Legends nominees begins at 6:30 p.m. The concert starts at 7:30 p.m.

Where:
Northern Virginia Community College, Alexandria Campus, Rachel M. Schlesinger Concert Hall and Arts Center, 3001 North Beauregard Street, Alexandria, VA 22311
