Old Cutler Presbyterian Church (OCPC), 14401 Old Cutler Rd., will host its 34th annual Christmas Concert on Saturday, Dec. 4, at 7:30 p.m. (Doors open at 7 p.m.). Old Cutler Presbyterian Church invites the community to enjoy the sights and sounds of Christmas during its annual concert performed by an array of musicians and vocalists from their church choir, orchestra, worship band and children’s choir.
“We wanted to offer every family in our city a free way to spend the evening together and celebrate Christmas,” said Senior Pastor Dr. Stephen Clark. “The musical talent we have at our church is astounding and we wanted to share that blessing with our community.”
The concert, directed by Dr. Dennis Kam, chair of the Department of Music Theory and Composition at the University of Miami, plans on delivering a healthy blend of traditional orchestra, modern jazz pieces, Christmas favorites and sing-a-longs.
Assisting with the concert are graduates of the University of Miami music program, Shawn Sutta (Worship Band director) and Jamie Perez (choir director), who plan on injecting the concert with soulful jazz, beautiful solos, and powerful orchestral pieces.
“We’re hoping this concert puts a smile on everyone’s face, both young and old,” said Sutta, who also directs the Worship Band at Old Cutler Presbyterian Church. “We are excited for this opportunity to get some of the city’s greatest musicians together, groove to some Christmas music, and celebrate a day that is truly special.”
