The Heart of Texas Orchestra's annual Christmas concert December 15 will be filled with festive favorites.

The performance is 6 p.m. Sunday at First Baptist Church, 901 La Ventana Drive in Marble Falls. Admission is free. Refreshments will be served.

Under the direction of Bo Boshears, the local group will present new orchestrations of “Emmanuel,” “A Charlie Brown Christmas,” “Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas,” “All is Well,” and “Hyfrydol” featuring violinist Susan Matheney.

The orchestra also will perform highlights from Tchaikovsky's "The Nutcracker" and an audience favorite, Leroy Anderson’s “Sleigh Ride," originally written as an instrumental piece for a symphony orchestra.

Making their first appearance with the Heart of Texas Orchestra will be Amy and Dorey Stubblefield, who will sing a vintage version of “White Christmas." The Stubblefields have just returned from appearing in a sold-out concert of Handel’s “Messiah” at Carnegie Hall in New York City.

TheHeart of Texas Orchestra is made up of volunteer community musicians from Llano, Burnet, Marble Falls, Spicewood, Johnson City, Cedar Park, and Austin.
