Art Park to host ‘Winter Sounds’ with Benzie Central High School Chamber Choir

THOMPSONVILLE — Michigan Legacy Art Park will again present “Winter Sounds,” an outdoor holiday concert featuring Benzie Central High School Chamber Choir, for the fourth year in a row.

This family-friendly concert and singalong will take place at 5 p.m. on Dec. 15, at the Art Park’s forest amphitheater, a short a quarter mile walk from the Art Park’s trailhead entrance.

“Our Winter Sounds event has become a magical tradition of music, atmosphere and fellowship,” said Michigan Legacy Art Park staffer Troy DeShano. “It’s always a unique evening, and one that many families now look forward to each year.”

Guests will enjoy a short winter hike, bonfire, hot cocoa, and an inspiring holiday choral performance by area teens from Benzie County. Attendees should dress for cold weather and bring blankets or camp chairs to sit on.

Michigan Legacy Art Park is dedicated to environmental consciousness and encourages bringing travel mugs or your own Thermos for hot cocoa to cut down on waste. Dogs on leash are welcome to join. A $10 suggested donation benefits Michigan Legacy Art Park and the Benzie Central choral program.

Due to snowy conditions, the trails are not ADA accessible for this event. Limited parking is available at the Art Park entrance and trailhead with additional parking on Mountain Woods Drive, less than a block away.

Michigan Legacy Art Park is open daily, year-round. For additional information, please visit michlegacyartpark.org or call (231) 378-4963.
