     A NEw Heart For Christmas!

The Island Chapel Presents "A New Heart for Christmas" Cantata !

Presented at the beautiful Mahaffey Theater in St. Petersburg, December 15th at 7 pm, “ A New Heart for Christmas,” is a heart-warming, Broadway-style story about a little girl who desperately needs a Christmas miracle, a new heart. Doctors are doing all they can to locate a donor. Encouraged by her grandfather, she discovers the true meaning of Christmas through this journey. With a joyful ending, you will want to sing along with familiar, traditional carols. This promises to be a memorable event, one you will want to share with the entire family! The production features the lovely voices of The Island Singers Choir, and a children’s choir, led by Kenn Mann.
