Pine Tones set their annual holiday concert

(Dec. 11, 2014)  The Pine Tones Chorus will present its Christmas concert at Atlantic United Methodist Church on Fourth Street in Ocean City, Friday, Dec. 19, at 7:30 p.m.
The concert theme is “The Colors of Christmas” and features a song with that same title by John Rutter, a famous composer of choral music.
The popular songs “Blue Christmas” by Elvis, “Silver Bells” and “White Christmas” by Irving Berlin are well known holiday choices. The seasonal message of peace and good will is also represented by several selections.
“Our audience may be surprised to hear one song from Dr. Seuss,” Chorus Director June Todd said.  “This could bring some laughter.”
The Pine Tones Chorus includes about 60 singers from Ocean Pines, Ocean City and nearby areas.   Todd is the chorus director and Sandra Coston-Barkley is the group’s accompanist. A guest musician, Tom Baione, will be playing string bass.
Admission is free and an offering will be received. After the concert, guests may enjoy refreshments in the church social hall.
The Pine Tones Chorus has been entertaining local audiences in the Ocean Pines and Ocean City areas since 1984.

Funding for Pine Tones Chorus activities comes from individual donations and sponsors as well as the Worcester County Arts Council, Maryland State Arts Council and the National Endowment for the Arts. These organizations are dedicated to cultivating a vibrant cultural community where the arts thrive.
