Rockin’ Christmas Concert” to Support Local Charities –
“Ornament” Comes to Old Greenwich on November 30
First Congregational Church Meetinghouse
108 Sound Beach Avenue, Old Greenwich
Friday, November 30, 2018, 8:00 pm
The award-winning tribute band Ornament will bring its 11-piece rock orchestra and multimedia show to Old Greenwich for a charity concert in the historic Meetinghouse of the First Congregational Church at 8:00 pm on November 30.
Ornament has earned a reputation as Southern New England’s favorite tribute band with its renditions of Trans-Siberian Orchestra songs, stories and special effects.
The Old Greenwich concert will present a moving story of the power of answered Christmas wishes.
It will feature many traditional holiday carols and songs set to rock, blues and gospel music, channeled over a professional sound system and accompanied by a light show consisting of dozens of lights, strobes, lasers, fog machines, and snow machines.
“Ornament injects attitude into the holiday season,” said Susan Lewis, President of the Norwood Theater in Massachusetts, where the band has often been featured. “It provides the perfect change of pace for an audience that needs a break from the ‘softer’ side of Christmas.”
“We want to rock the house and lift everyone’s spirits as we begin our celebration of the Christmas season,” said Patrick Collins, Associate Pastor for Youth and Families at First Church. “And, as an added bonus, all proceeds from the concert will go to local charities supported by our annual Christmas Tree sale.”
The six vital local charities are Kids in Crisis, The Den for Grieving Kids, the Young Adults Program at Pacific House, the Soundwater Young Mariners Academy, Building One Community, and BackCountry Jazz, which provides music enrichment to Bridgeport students.
Tickets are to the Ornament concert are $20 for adults, free for everyone 18 and under, and are available for advance purchase on the First Church website, or at the door on the night of the performance, subject to availability.
