On the Road Again- Just Can't Wait for that Thanksgiving Travel Traffic!

The TV & Internet have already begun showing the long lines of vehicles on the roadways, luggage dragging families in the airports, and even the lines at bus & train stations this Thanksgiving week. This is a huge reason I almost always have Thanksgiving at my house. As much as I dread getting up at 5am on a day off to throw the bird in the oven and prepare to stand in a hot kitchen for 10 hours while others eat, drink, watch football, and be merry.... I dislike sitting in traffic and crowds even more.

But for all you brave folks out there that are hitting the roadways, skies, rails this week; here are a few tips from the American Red Cross to make it a safe trip.

HAPPY THANKSGIVING!

Voices in the Laurel Holiday Concert - First Baptist Church in Waynesville

Voices in the Laurel's annual Holiday Concert will be on Saturday December 15th at 4pm at the First Baptist Church at 100 South Main Street, Waynesville, NC. Tickets are available by calling 828-335-2849 or on their website www.voicesinthelaurel.org - click on 'Support Us' - 'Buy Tickets'

Included in the Voices in the Laurel's repertoire will be "El cant des Ocells" (Song of the Birds), a Catalan Christmas carol, which the children will sing in Catalan, an official language of the Spanish community of Catalonia. Some of the choir's members performed the carol at the 130-year-old Basilica Sagrada Familia in Spain this summer.

"When we sang it in Barcelona, the people at our concert leapt to their feet and sang with us," said Martha Brown, executive director of Voices in the Laurel. "They were weeping. It was one of the most touching moments of our festival tour. It was beautiful. This song is from that region of Spain. We are so excited to share this piece of music with the rest of our choir and the audiences in western North Carolina this season because of its beauty and representation of another culture."

Also included in the Voices concert will be a medley of Christmas songs from "The Polar Express," with all of the children in costume and a musical arrangement of Robert Frost's "Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening." The choir will be accompanied by pianists Mary Ann Cooper and Anna Watson, oboist Judy Dodson, and Robert Brown, drums, and Trevor Stoia, string bass.

Voices in the Laurel's Chamber Choir will also be performing at the Biltmore Candlelight Christmas Evening on Monday December 10th as well as the Appalachian Christmas Pre-Concert with the Junaluska Singers at the Stuart Auditorium at 2:15pm on Saturday December 8th at the Stuart Auditorium at Lake Junaluska in conjunction with Voices Holiday Silent Auction at the Harrell Center from 12-5:30pm.
