Fulfilling Christ's call to love God, live in community, and serve our neighbor

Two Concert Bands Plan Christmas Concerts

Advent Hopewell and Salem bands on four dates

The Advent Hopewell Moravian Concert Band will offer Christmas Concerts at:

  • Arbor Acres in the Berrier Building, Tuesday, Dec. 4 at 7 p.m.
  • Salemtowne in the Saal on Tuesday, Dec. 11 at 7 p.m.

Both concerts have great attendance, and Salemtowne generally packs the Saal. We will play sheet music including "White Christmas," "Little Drummer Boy", "Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree," etc., and, of course, Christmas and Moravian Christmas Carols. 

2018 Salem Band Holiday Concerts – "'Twas the Night Before Christmas”

  • Tuesday, Dec. 18, New Philadelphia Moravian Church, 7:30 p.m., free
  • Thursday, Dec. 20, Trinity Moravian Church, 7:30 p.m., free

Join Salem Band and guest narrator/vocal soloist James Allbritten (General/Artistic Director, Piedmont Opera of Winston-Salem) as we reminisce and dream about Christmas Eves past and future. Hear Jamie sing “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas” and narrate Clement Clark Moore’s “’Twas the Night Before Christmas.” The program also includes “A Charlie Brown Christmas,” “Shepherd’s Pipe Carol,” and “Christmas Eve Sarajevo,” as well as annual favorite, “Sleigh Ride.” The band will make a musical visit to 1914 with “Season of Peace,” commemorating that famous Christmas Eve Truce during WWI.

Enjoy pre-concert music by Salem Saxophone Quartet. Participate in your community with Holiday sing-alongs and donations to our annual charity partner, Sunnyside Ministry. Plenty of free parking is available.
