Fedor Christmas Concert Delights Crowd
Trinity Lutheran Church in Fedor and St. James Lutheran Church in Lexington hosted their annual Christmas Concert last Thursday night, to the delight of the estimated 200 people in attendance. This was truly a community wide event with very special musical performances by members of St. Paul Lutheran Church in Serbin.
The St. Paul Lutheran Adult Choir, under the direction of Jack Weiderhold, gave beautiful renditions of traditional German Christmas Hymns, as well as other familiar hymns, such as O Holy Night, O Come, O Come Emmanuel and the Hallelujah Chorus, accompanied by the piano and occasionally by a flutist and a violinist.
Members of St. Paul’s Choir have performed for years in and around Lee County and had prepared for Thursday’s presentation for three months. It was truly stunning.
The St. Paul Children’s Hand Bell Choir also performed, demonstrating their keen musical talents as they played Away in a Manger, Joy to the World and Silent Night, Holy Night. This too was a joy to witness.
Lexington resident and talented organist at Trinity Lutheran in Fedor, Kathleen Boettcher, played the magnificent pipe organ, as well as the piano, accompanying the congregational singing of traditional Christmas Hymns.
The evening’s performance was accented by the beautiful and fresh restoration of the Trinity Lutheran Church sanctuary.
