The pews were full for a performance by the Ferraro String Ensemble, who shared the wonderful gift of music at Faith Lutheran Church on December 11. The evening’s Christmas music included “Good Christian Men Rejoice,” “O Holy Night,” “Ding Dong Merrily on High,” “Do You Hear What I Hear” and “Silent Night,” ending with the audience standing for the “Hallelujah Chorus.”
Faith Lutheran also has two more mini-concerts and an optional light lunch in its Advent Allegro programming. The first is at 12:15 p.m. on Wednesday, December 14, with the Jacksonville High School Madrigal Singers, performing under the direction of Christine Smith. The second is on Wednesday, December 21, with Anna Ferraro, pianist. If you missed the Ferraro String Ensemble, you won’t want to miss Anna, who also played the piano at during the Ferraro String Ensemble concert.
