Christmas Concert at the Roxy

The Alliance Symphony Big Band, under the direction of Bryan Stehura, will present a 90-minute concert of familiar Christmas songs and big-band selections on Friday, Dec. 8, 8 p.m. in Minerva’s Roxy Theatre, 114 N. Market St., benefiting the Minerva Area Historical Society’s roof-replacement project.

This event will be held in conjunction with Minerva’s monthly Discover Downtown celebration, highlighting the art, food, drink, and shopping on North Market Street.

Refreshments will be available before and during intermission.

To sponsor the concert ($100) or purchase tickets ($10) please contact Laurie McClellan, Minerva Area Historical Society treasurer, at 330-323-3692. Tickets are also available at the historical society’s Haas Museum on Wednesday afternoons and second Fridays and at the Minerva Area Chamber of Commerce, Edward Jones, The Hart Mansion Restaurant, and Sandy Springs Brewing Company during their regular business hours.

The historical society recommends purchasing tickets prior to the event, but any remaining tickets will be sold at the door the night of the concert.

Profits from the concert will benefit the Minerva Area Historical Society, a 501 (c)(3), for replacing the roof on the Haas Museum. The Haas Museum will be open prior to the concert, and visitors are welcome to stop in to share in Minerva’s rich history.

Membership in the historical society is open to the public and meetings are held on the fourth Monday of each month, except for the month of December.
