Mainstage Orchestra Series: Christmas Pops Concert
Dec 9 @ 7:00 pm
Riverside Baptist Church

Come out and enjoy the fall finale with our Christmas Pops Concert. The program includes seasonal favorites that will be guaranteed to help our audience get into a festive mood for the holiday season. Plan on bringing a toy to the concert to donate to our Toys for Tots Drive in an attempt to bring Christmas to a child that would not be able to celebrate it this Yuletide season. Upon conclusion of the concert, we will have a reception in the fellowship hall to which all of our audience members are invited.
