The 2022 Winter Concert was wonderful. We have a new director, Melanie Bolas. She and the music team did a fabulous job this season. Due to building construction at Culpeper Baptist Church, we rehearsed and performed at Culpeper United Methodist Church. We are so grateful to CUMC for allowing us to use their facilities.  We filled the house, standing room only, with music and Christmas Joy.
