Holiday show in Roanoke will benefit Honor Flights

A holiday concert will be held in Roanoke on Dec. 7 at 7:30 p.m. to benefit Honor Flights for veterans.
"A Cottage Christmas Celebration" at the Cottage Event Center will feature seasonal music.

Huntington University theater and music students will perform old favorites, including "White Christmas," "Silent Night" and "It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year." New pieces will include "Mr. Grinch," "Baby It's Cold Outside" and "All I want for Christmas."

Performing students are Lindsay Hoops-Siewart, Ja'Shon Burkes, Josh Cookingham, Jessica Wagel, Trenidy Cox and Haley Glinz.
