Christmas on the Prairie
Dear Friend of St. Anthony’s,
It is with great enthusiasm that we announce our 10th Annual “Christmas on the Prairie” Concert. This year’s theme is 0 Wisdom from on High. The concert will take place at St. Anthony’s Church in Hoven on Sunday, December 8th @ 3:00pm and will once again entertain and inspire. It will include a unique performance by the South Dakota Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Mr. Henry Charles Smith. Featured artists will be baritone Bradley Greenwald and mezzo-soprano Susan VanDover. Tom Roberts will again provide professional narration during the performance. The concert will also include Northern State University Chamber singers, along with a Regional All-Faiths Chorus and much more.
The benefit Christmas concert raises money to fund the ongoing restoration of one of South Dakota’s most significant historic landmarks — St. Anthony of Padua Church. It is the generous response and support of so many that has enabled us to achieve the significant growth in our perpetual care of St. Anthony’s Church.
