The Magi Fund will hold an all-new holiday event, A Magi Christmas Concert & Veterans Day Tribute, for one performance only on Saturday, Nov. 11.
It will feature the National Christian Choir and the Orchestra of the Eastern Shore.
The show will be at 3 p.m. in the 1,800+ seat Emmanuel Church Auditorium at 217 Beaglin Park Drive in Salisbury.
The Magi Fund, an all-volunteer nonprofit organization, has for three decades staged musical events as fundraisers for the Joseph House Center and the Christian Shelter. Throughout its existence, the Magi Fund has devoted 100% of ticket proceeds and contributions to benefit those two charities, which provide housing and crisis intervention for the region’s needy.
“We are celebrating our 30th year and we’re planning a very special and slightly different concert,” said Magi Fund Chairman Bonnie Luna. “November 11 is a significant day of remembrance — Veterans Day — and in addition to our Christmas program, we will recognize and honor our Veterans with a special patriotic tribute.
“This will be particularly memorable as we celebrate the birth of Christ and honor those who have served our country.”
Committee Member Cynthia Williams added, “The National Christian Choir is returning for its 20th year of performing in the Magi Fund’s annual holiday concert. The Orchestra of the Eastern Shore is making its debut appearance. They will perform separately, as well as together, to produce an unforgettable program of music. You don’t want to miss this concert.”
Williams said members of the community encourage the Magi Fund to continue providing this holiday event to kick off the Christmas season. “Each year, God makes a way for us to do so,” she noted. “We are often told by attendees that the concert sets the tone for their holiday, and many say it is the highlight of the season.”
Luna said tickets for Magi concerts have always been in high demand. “The fact there will be only one show and we’re adding the Veterans Day Tribute will just make this more so. Folks should buy their tickets as soon as possible to avoid disappointment,” she said.
Tickets are $20 and available online or at the Country House in Salisbury and all branches of First Shore Federal Savings and Loan in Salisbury, Pocomoke City, Ocean Pines, Snow Hill and in Ocean, View, Del.
