Annual Holiday Concert Featuring the Porter Brook Trio

It's hard to believe this will be our 5th Holiday Concert! If you've been to one of our previous concerts, you know you can expect everything from classical holiday favorites to songs with a little twang. Come hear Mavis on flute and saxophone; Roy on violin, guitar, and piano; and Annie holding it down on cello and upright bass - and a little singing from everyone. We will be joined by some of our talented friends and family members - stay tuned!
Admission by donation. A portion of proceeds will benefit WonderArts.


We are excited to feature 'House of Deer' by Jess Polanshek as our concert image this year. Jess is an artist/illustrator based in Jeffersonville - check out more of her work at www.ofthehills.com.

Local experts and community leaders facilitate post-film community conversations that provide the tools and understanding for how to create a positive change in our community through education, outreach, and action.
