Music and holiday cheer will abound at the Elliott Museum in Stuart on Saturday, December 5, from 12 to 4 p.m. The celebrated Community Concert Band will present “The 12 Days of Christmas” under the direction of conductor Jim LeBon and president Fred Gartner. The concert will include a composition by the same title written by one of the foremost female composers, Julie Giroux.
Additional fan favorites will include “Sleigh Ride,” “Christmas Fugue,” “The Holly and the Ivy,” and “I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas.”
Museum staff say this event is an opportunity to listen to holiday music while admiring the museum’s various exhibits, like “Artists & Multi-Media Giants,” “Portfolios – Eclectic Artists and Art at the Elliott,” the General Store, featuring a variety of antique artifacts, and the museum’s renowned automobile collection featuring more than 100 twentieth century vehicles.
Guests will also enjoy festive additions, like a collection of Snow Village houses, antique toys, and a Christmas tree in the lobby. The indulgence will continue as The “Palm City Cookie Ladies” hand out complimentary cookies to museum-goers.
