Blue Ridge Christmas Program Announced

Imagine, it’s a chilly Sunday afternoon in December. You bundle up and head to the lovely Rockfish Presbyterian Church. You see friends – old and new, and you enjoy the sounds of the talented Virginia Consort singing carols – also old and new.

Sounds like the perfect way to kick off the holiday season, and it sounds like a community tradition not to be missed!

And, finally, we can unveil the program!
