Voices of the Mountains
The Highlands Cashiers Players have been delighting audiences with their annual holiday presentations for years.
It’s a free program and a gift to the community, a way of saying “thank you” for its support. This year it will be held at the Highlands Performing Arts Center on Thursday, December 17 at 7:00 P.M.
As has been their tradition in the past, the Players will once again offer a dramatized reading as well as special music. The reading is taken from Betty Smith’s novel, “A Tree Grows in Brooklyn.” It’s a poignant literary classic that tells the story of Francie Nolan and her brother Neeley, growing up in an impoverished neighborhood of Brooklyn, New York in the early 1900s. The music of this year’s Holiday program will be presented by the men and women of the new 40-voice regional chorus Mountain Voices.
The group, composed of voices from Highlands, Franklin and Dillard, recently debuted at the Smoky Mountain Performing Arts Center in Franklin and is directed by Beverly Barnett and accompanied by pianist Arthea Brimmer. After the program, audience members are invited to enjoy refreshments downstairs in the PAC reception room.
No tickets are required, so wear your best Christmas sweater and bring the family to the annual Highlands Cashiers Players Holiday Reading at the Highlands Performing Arts Center on Chestnut Street.
