Southern Stars providing free concert

CROSSVILLE — As a gift to the Greater Crossville community for their support to the Southern Stars Symphonic Brass and as a celebration of their fifth anniversary season,  the SSSB will be giving two free-admission concerts on Saturday, Nov. 17 at 4:30 p.m. and 7 p.m. These concerts will be at the Fairfield Glade Community Church, 521 Snead Dr., Fairfield Glade. The concerts will be traditional Christmas and holiday music, and the concert theme is "Brassy Christmas."

The 30-piece professional instrumental brass ensemble utilizes musicians who are top quality from Eastern and Middle Tennessee and includes personnel who are from Nashville, Murfreesboro, Chattanooga, Knoxville, Cookeville and Crossville. They have been providing a three-concert paid admission series in Crossville for five years and have become recognized for their "Premium Entertainment," so this is a great opportunity, for those have not heard one of their concerts, to come see why they have been widely praised for their high quality performances. Concert sponsors are Bed & Biscuit Kennel, Cumberland Medical Center and Flynn Sign Co.

Admission to these concerts requires the possession of a free ticket voucher, which can be picked up at only two locations: Cumberland Eye Care offices of Dr. Stuart Galloway (corner of 57 Fairfield Blvd. and Peavine Rd. in Fairfield Glade), and at the Palace Theatre in Crossville (72 S. Main St.). Ticket vouchers will be available for pickup beginning Monday, Oct. 22. A maximum of four ticket vouchers can be picked up by an individual and they must decide which concert time they want to attend, as these vouchers are not interchangeable for a different concert.

The Southern Stars are expecting up to 450 (maximum capacity) at each of these concerts, so don't wait to get ticket vouchers, as full audiences are expected at each concert. The Southern Stars asks that you use all tickets picked up so the maximum number of people wanting tickets can be guaranteed a seat. Lastly, you must be in your seat 10 minutes before the concert, or standbys without tickets will be admitted to any seats available.

Music for the concert will include: March on Christmas Day, Three Kings Swing, Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas,  A Christmas Festival, The Christmas Song, Sleigh Ride,  White Christmas, Frosty the Snowman (bass trombone and tuba duet), Silent Night,  Go Tell It On the Mountain,  March — Christmas Rejoicing.

Take this opportunity to bring the entire family out to hear this outstanding ensemble perform in a rare free admission. A goodwill offering will be taken to help defray musicians' travel and concert expenses. For any additional questions, please contact Dwight Wages at  484-6939.

  • Conlee Color HI.jpg Conlee to perform at Palace

    John Conlee is a lot like the songs of which he sings. He lives a domestic life with his wife Gale and three children, Rebecca, Jessica and Johnny. During the past two decades, Conlee has achieved a level of success that he has sustained by simply being himself and by making records that the listening public can relate to. He is a gifted entertainer, but he’s not into the glitz and hype of the entertainment world. He’d rather spend his “off the road” time working on his 32 acre farm outside of Nashville or engaging in his woodworking and gunsmithing hobbies.
