Celebration Chorale Christmas Cantata

The Celebration Chorale will give three performances of “Bethlehem Morning” at First United Methodist Church, 317 N. Fourth St. in DeKalb.

Performances will be at 7 p.m. Thursday, December 7th and Saturday December 9th. The third performance will be Sunday, December 10th at 2 p.m. 

The Chorale will be under the direction of Christine Monteiro and will feature the Celebration Chorale Orchestra.

Although the Celebration Chorale practices and performs at FUMC in DeKalb, the musicians come from all over the area and include professionals and amateurs, longtime Chorale members, and those who are new to the group. The Chorale has singers representing over nine different church denominations and 10 local communities

“Bethlehem Morning” is a musical created by Russell Mauldin and Sue C. Smith. It is a Christmas musical that tells the miraculous story of Christ’s birth through traditional carols and Christmas favorites; sharing the powerful message that the Gospel should overflow into all aspects of our life.

There is no charge for the performances at the church, but there will be a free-will offering.

All are welcome. Refreshments will be served after the performances in Fellowship Hall.

The church is an accessible facility. Please enter from the Fourth Street entrance. There is parking available adjacent to the church and across Fourth Street.
