The Sugar Hill LDS Choir.

SUWANEE — The Sugar Hill LDS Choir’s eighth annual community Christmas-themed concert "The Night the Angels Sang" will be at 7 p.m. Dec. 16. at the LDS multipurpose building located at 1150 Cole Drive near Parkview High School, at the corner of Cole Drive and Five Forks Trickum Road. No ticket is necessary.Attendees from all over metro Atlanta have made the concert part of their holiday tradition. The all-volunteer choir draws members from Dawson, Hall, Forsyth, Gwinnett and Walton Counties.

This year’s show will feature special musical performances by accomplished violinists as well as a variety of music by the choir that includes traditional and unfamiliar Christmas songs.

"One of the purposes of our concerts is to give families a chance to experience an evening of live music together at a budget that anyone can afford — for free," said Suwanee resident Pamela Gates, director of the choir. "We’re excited to continue this musical tradition each year for our communities and are pleased to provide another location option convenient to those who live east of (Interstate) 85."

The choir was recently extended an invitation to sing at the 2012 and 2013 National Day Memorial Choral Festival at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C.

The 64-voice choir always performs for free and is accompanied by Eric Kristjanson of Lawrenceville and Michelle Whetten of Suwanee. For more information contact 404-375-7882 or visit
