The changing colors of the leaves... pumpkin pie and turkey... the undeniable scent of spices in the air. All signs that Thanksgiving is approaching. The traditional time to give thanks to the good we have, to wish good unto others, and to do good for those in need.
The Thanksgiving season, as a gateway to the year-end holidays, is rich in it's traditions. Here in Merrick, one of those traditions is the Merrick Brotherhood Council's annual Thanksgiving Festival of Music.
Traditionally held on the Sunday before Thanksgiving, this wonderful concert brings together amazing choirs and bell-choirs from several area houses of worship, local community choirs, and vocal ensembles from the Bellmore-Merrick Central High School District. It is an incredible afternoon of music which puts the audience in just the right mood to begin the holiday season!
Join us for this free music celebration, featuring all of our local musical talent!
Sunday, November 19th, 2:00pm, in the Calhoun High School Auditorium 1786 State Street, Merrick, NY
