ALL TOGETHER NOW


ALL TOGETHER NOW Lee Thomason directed some heavenly voices in the second annual Messiah Sing-a-long, held Sunday night at St. John’s United Methodist Church. Thomason directed a 17-voice choir and encouraged audience members to join in on popular Christmas carols and hymns. Thomason, who also played trumpet and piano, was accompanied by daughter Elisabeth and Mary Ray on piano, and wife Leah on flute. The hour-long program featured two numbers from The Messiah and a dozen yuletime favorites. He plans to alternate a full rendition of The Messiah with this format each year. The event also raised funds and food items for the local food pantry.
