A Christmas Tradition in Palmetto Bay
…42 Years in the Making!
We invite the city of Miami to kick off the Christmas season with us as our church choir, orchestra, worship band, handbell choir, youth choir and children’s choir present the 42nd Annual Christmas Concert.
DATE: Saturday, December 1st
TIME: Two shows: 4pm and 7:30pm
ADDRESS: Old Cutler Presbyterian Church - 14401 Old Cutler Road, Palmetto Bay, FL
“We invite every family in Miami to kickoff the Christmas Season with us. The concert is free and it’s our gift to the community,” says Senior Pastor Dr. Mike Campbell. “We’re blessed by the abundance of musical talent we have at our church and want to share it with the community as we celebrate the joy of Christmas.”
The Old Cutler Christmas concert is directed by three graduates from the University of Miami’s Music program.
U.M. graduates, Shawn Sutta and Jamie Sutta who are on staff at Old Cutler Presbyterian Church, lead the worship band and choir and plan on injecting the concert with soulful jazz, beautiful solos, and powerful choral pieces.
Melissa Lesniak, the orchestra director at Old Cutler, along with a full orchestra that stretches across the church’s stage, will perform traditional orchestra pieces, classical Christmas hymns and sing-a-longs. Melissa received her PhD in Music Education from the University of Miami and previously served as orchestra conductor and Executive Director for the Greater Miami Youth Symphony.
“We’re hoping this concert brings families together, both young and old,” says Shawn Sutta. “We are excited for this opportunity to get some of the city’s greatest musicians together and celebrate a day that is truly special. ”
Doors open 30 minutes prior to each show.
