Carillon hosting Christmas concerts

A Piedmont-based singing group that has sung for the president and his family at the White House Tree Lighting Ceremony will perform two free concerts this holiday season at Carillon Assisted Living’s Salisbury and Mooresville communities.
The Carolers of Christmas Past also perform regularly at the governor’s mansion, Reynolda Village and the Henry Shaffner House, among other places.
Carolers of Christmas Past will perform their signature style of Dickens-era classics, in full Victorian dress costume, at the Carillon communities on Dec. 14. First, the group will perform at Carillon of Salisbury, 1915 Mooresville Road, at 11:30 a.m. The group will then travel to Carillon in Mooresville, located at 198 E. Waterlynn Road, for a 1 p.m. performance.
The concerts are part of an effort to welcome families and friends to Carillon’s 17 statewide communities for a fun, festive celebration featuring the traditions of Christmas’ past and present, a news release said.
“Our Carillon Christmas Concert is a way to bring people together around the very traditions that unite us at the holiday season, and in effect, all year long,” Karen Moriarty, Carillon’s president and CEO, said in the news release. “And it is so important to center those festivities around our seniors, because they are the ones who taught us to honor those Christmas traditions and to pass them on to our children.”
In addition to music and caroling, each event will feature holiday fare and incorporate charitable giving opportunities to local children’s charities. For charitable donation information, visit the community section of Carillon’s website at: www.carillonassistedliving.com/our-communities/
