News!A Christmas Choral Concert with Finley Woolston and his Joyful Band of Singers
7:30 PM, Friday, Dec 6, 2013
On Friday, December 6, at 7:30 PM there will be a concert of Christmas choral music at the Ocracoke United Methodist Church featuring musical styles from the 12th century to the present. Public Radio East’s classical music host, Finley Woolston, will direct his Joyful Band of Singers in this free holiday event. Everyone is welcome!
Finley Woolston's voice is very familiar across Eastern North Carolina to listeners of WTEB 89.3 FM, Public Radio East's Classical Music station. For over 20 years Finley has hosted a variety of classical programs and currently is the host for PRE's Classical Morning Concert. Finley is also the producer and host of The Choral Tradition, a program dedicated exclusively to choral music, heard each Sunday at 3:00 p.m. on PRE. Finley has performed with many Eastern North Carolina choruses and is the Music Director of Richlands United Methodist Church, in Richlands, NC and is also the Music Director and Conductor of the Crystal Coast Choral Society.
Many thanks goes out to the Ocracoke United Methodist Church for hosting the concert, and to Ocracoke Alive for assisting with housing and food for the performers.
