Douglas Nelson of Keene and Colebrook will return to conduct the family friendly program, hosted with his daughter, Sharon Pearson. It will include many beloved Christmas carols, with several for the audience to sing along. As in recent years, Nelson has also arranged a special feature for a quartet.
A participation fee for players helps support the Harvey Philips Foundation, which produces and distributes the music. As a thank you to the Colebrook participants, this year their fees will be covered by Ron Guerin of Calex Environmental Consulting, who recognizes the very special value of this unique performance, and how much it depends on players willing to share their time and talent with Colebrook. Calex specializes in assisting companies with compliance with environmental and occupational regulations (www.calexenvironmental.com).
The 1 p.m. concert is free, but donations are requested to help offset the other costs of this very special event. Proceeds then help support the Great North Woods Committee for the Arts.
