The Fine Arts Department of Jones County Junior College will present “The Star of Bethlehem,” a Christmas concert by the JCJC Concert Choir and special guests, including an orchestra and dancers from the Laurel Ballet Academy.

The public is invited to attend this free concert on Sunday, Dec. 3, at 6 p.m. at the First Baptist Church of Laurel.

Joining JCJC’s 90-member Concert Choir, under the direction of Joel Dunlap and accompanist Dr. Victoria Johnson will be a 90-piece handbell choir, organist Martha Monroe and a full orchestra. Additionally, the Laurel Ballet Academy Performance Company will perform with the choir for several musical numbers.
