The FCC choir’s annual Holiday Cantata, led by Music Director Brett Hinkel, was performed and very well received on Sunday, January 10, 2016 at 3:00 PM in the FCC sanctuary.  This year’s selection, “Appalachian Winter” by Joseph M. Martin, featured guest soprano soloist Erin Anderson. In addition to church organist, Margaret Clark, on piano, the cantata was accompanied by several members of the Sharon Community Chamber Orchestra: Stephen Shepherd on violin; Brian Kruse on cello; and, Rebecca Rubin on flute, as well as several musicians from the community: Nick Francese on guitar; Devin Powers on mandolin; and Randy Cloutier on percussion.  Preceding the cantata performance was a prelude of Appalachian carol arrangements performed by Erin Anderson and Mindy Hinkel (contralto), accompanied by Music Director Brett Hinkel.  After the concert, refreshments provided by several members of the church congregation were served.  As always, admission to the concert was FREE. However, a free-will donation was accepted before and after the performance to benefit the church’s music program.
