Plant City's 'Christmas by Candlelight' To Feature 150 Singers, Musicians

The Plant City Community Choir is set to perform two shows of its reportedly largest holiday show ever. Both stagings of "Christmas by Candlelight" will be at the Evangelical Presbyterian Church of Plant City.

 

Promising to "re-tell the Christmas story in a way that Plant City has never heard it," the Plant City Community Choir is planning to put 150 singers and musicians on stage Dec. 8 for its reportedly largest-ever "Christmas by Candlelight" production.

Likewise, the group is expecting such a large crowd at its venue, the Evangelical Presbyterian Church of Plant City, that it is staging two shows this year instead of one.

According to the choir's Facebook announcement:

  • The 6 p.m. show will be narrated by Scott Lingle, associate pastor of Evangelical Presbyterian Church. Singing in the "Voices of Light" octet will be Melody Brown, Jessica Jacobs, Jo-An Lusk, April Davis, Matt Nestor, Andy Tekampe and Ed Keiser
  • The 8 p.m. show will be narrated by Plant City Commissioner Bill Dodson. Singing in the "Voices of Light" octet will be Dianne Sillman, Paula Spangler-Klein, Jenise Freeland, Kristen Holloway, Lamar Galloway, Robert Tait, Antonio Young and Manuel Castillo.

This  year's conductors:

  • Peter A. Belk, associate director of bands at the University of South Florida
  • Joseph Mendolia, artistic director of the Plant City Community Choir

Tickets can be purchased online. Or call: 813-444-TUNE. This year, two types of tickets are available:

  • General Admission — $10 in advance, $12 at the door. Children age 12 and under $5.
  • VIP Admission — $20, includes concert ticket, VIP parking, VIP seating and reception meet-and-greet with conductor, narrator and "Voice of Light" octet.

The Evangelical Presbyterian Church of Plant City is at 1107 Charlie Griffin Road. The Plant City Community Choir rehearses Monday nights, 7 to 9:30, in the chorus room at Plant City High School, 1 Raider Place.
