Masterworks Chorale among performances at Centre

Masterworks Chorale will give a holiday concert at the Centre for Performing and Visual arts 3 p.m. Dec. 8.

It is among a slate of holiday performances at the Centre on Lower Fayetteville Road.

Tickets are $10, $5 for students. The concert of Christmas and holiday music features the talents of former Celtic Woman Lisa Kelly, the masterworks Chorale and the masterworks Youth Chorale.

Since its founding in 2003, Masterworks Chorale has presented at least three performances each year with one of them being a Masterwork. Made up of residents 18 years and older of Coweta County and surrounding areas, the Chorale has furthered the art of singing exceptional choral music through rehearsal and performance of standard literature of quality and interest.

The chorus also has been in workshop with internationally known choral conductor and professor, Don Neuen, has performed with Dove Award-winning Linda McKechnie and the Atlanta Pops Orchestra.

Among other performances:

• “Junie B. in Jingle Bells, Batman Smells” will be Dec. 1 at 3 p.m. Tickets are $12 adults, $4 or Coweta County students.

The play is holiday fun with a lesson about giving, and is a perfect treat for the holiday season. It is recommended for kindergarten-aged children and up.

It’s holiday time, and everyone’s favorite first grader is back to celebrate! All of the students in Room One are happily creating the perfect holiday party. Except, how is Junie B. Jones supposed to enjoy anything when she has drawn the name of her arch nemesis, Tattletale May, for her Secret Santa Gift? But wait — the Secret Santa gift is the perfect opportunity to give May exactly what she deserves…Maybe. • “It's A Wonderful Life” will be performed Dec. 6 at 7 p.m. Tickets are $10.

One of America’s favorite Christmas movies is brought to the stage by the by a national touring company, with a Radio Theatre approach that perfectly fits the period.

“It’s a Wonderful Life” is the uplifting and bittersweet tale of George Bailey’s close call with death on Christmas Eve, of how important and special he is to all those around him — and what this world have missed had he not been born. It’s a story about the people of Bedford Falls, about neighbors, friends and family, and about the difference one person makes in so many others’ lives.
