MILLIGAN COLLEGE, Tenn. (November 11, 2009) – Experience the glorious sounds and sights of the winter season as Milligan College presents “A Milligan College Community Christmas” on Sunday, Dec. 6, at 7:30 p.m., in Milligan’s Seeger Memorial Chapel.

The concert is free, but a $5 donation is suggested. All donations will benefit Second Harvest Food Bank, a local nonprofit organization whose mission is to feed hungry people and work together to solve the hunger issues in our community.

“The Milligan College Community Christmas is our annual holiday event that showcases the talents of the music department and provides an opportunity for audiences to enjoy the sounds of the seasons and to give to a well-deserving charity,” said Dr. Kellie Brown, associate professor of music at Milligan. “This is an event that we look forward to all year.”

The performance will feature a variety of musical compositions from choirs, orchestra, brass and organ. The evening will also include a carol sing-along and will conclude with a moving candle-lighting and singing of “Silent Night.”

The doors to Seeger Chapel will open at 7 p.m. For additional information contact the Milligan Music Office at 423.461.8723 or
