Home for Christmas: Concert by Voce Chamber Singers

The following was sent to us by Elliot Wicks:

Music and Christmas are inseparable, as Voce’s Christmas concerts demonstrate year after year. The choice of music for Christmas is endless; Voce has tried its best to do it all! This year, we draw music from past Christmas concerts, especially a cappella gems. As always, the audience will be invited to sing with us. Familiar carols will be heard and sung, as will contemporary songs like Jim Brickman’s Coming Home for Christmas and Faith Hill’s Where are you Christmas? Classical Christmas works on the program include O Magnum Mysterium by de Victoria, On this Starry Night by Matthew Harris, and the hauntingly beautiful Ave Maria by Biebl.

New Sidewalk Made Possible Through Town/County Parternship

From the Town of Vienna:

Vienna, VA- There will be a ribbon cutting ceremony for the newly completed sidewalk along Lawyers Road on Saturday, November 20, at 9 a.m. at the corner of Abbotsford Drive and Lawyers Road in Fairfax County.  The new 5’ wide sidewalk runs along Lawyers Road from Blair Court, NW in Vienna to Abbotsford Drive in Fairfax County.  The public is encouraged to attend.

This section of Lawyers Road topped the Town’s Sidewalk Task Force List, which identifies locations in Town in need of sidewalks, and is compiled based on input from residents, the Town’s Transportation Safety Commission, Town Council and the Department of Public Works.  This section of Lawyers Road was given a high priority status since it serves as a walking route to Louise Archer Elementary School, is the location for several bus stops, and is along a busy thoroughfare with high speed and heavy traffic volume.
