Christmas Concert in Wolcott NY
Yes, Virginia there is a Santa Claus…or least there IS in Wolcott, and he is bringing
a Christmas Concert to Main Street! Chris Kenyon and Kelley Patchen-Loveless
are going to keep a 23-year tradition alive, with sponsorship from Lyons National
Bank (LNB) who will provide funding for the show.
Slated for 3 PM on Sunday, December 10th at the First Presbyterian Church, 11988 W Main Street, Wolcott, the concert is free and open to the public and is appropriate for all ages.
Kenyon and Patchen-Loveless enlisted veteran musicians Joe Cortini
and Matt Vacanti to direct the show; Vacanti-the great versatile bass player- will serve as arranger/bandleader.
They are bringing in a five piece “house band” that will serve as a supporting cast
for instrumentalists and vocalists with styles ranging from Blue Grass to Jazz and Classical. “As always when Cortini and Vacanti collaborate you can expect world-class music. They’ve shared a couple highlights about the show, and I can tell you this traditional Christmas concert should not be missed” noted curator Kenyon.
“The concert at the church is a highlight of the Holiday season for me, and I’m
honored to be able to help continue the tradition. Matt (Vacanti) is bringing in
some A-list players, which will take the show to the next level,” said Cortini.
Cash donations are accepted, which will benefit the First Presbyterian Food
Pantry that serves over 1400 families in the Wolcott area.
The show has a run time of approximately 90 minutes, with an intermission for cookies and
refreshments. For more information contact Chris Kenyon at 315-879-1341.
