With the holiday season just around the corner, the Smoky Mountain Center for the Performing Arts is gearing up to launch a holiday line-up fun for the whole family.

To start things off, the Overlook Theatre Company will be bringing back a crowd favorite and a character guests of all ages can enjoy, Charlie Brown.


When two phenomenal Christian artists take the stage to celebrate the reason for the holiday season, audiences can expect no less than an evening of spirit-lifting, inspiring music.

Sandi Patty and Jason Crabb will bring their show, “A Celebration of the Christmas Season,” to the Smoky Mountain Center of the Performing arts on Saturday, Nov. 25. Showtime is set for 7:30 p.m. and tickets start at $26 each.


The Smoky Mountain Brass Quintet will be performing its fall 2012 recital at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 27, in the recital hall of the Coulter Building at Western Carolina University.

The WCU quintet-in-residence consists of P. Bradley Ulrich and David Ginn, trumpets; Travis Bennett, horn; Dan Cherry, trombone; and Michael Schallock, tuba.

Works on the program will include “Vuelta del Fuego (Ride of Fire)” by Kevin McKee, “Colchester Fantasy” by Eric Ewazen, “Indiana” arranged by Paul Nagle, “Centone V” arranged by Verne Reynolds, “Mini Overture” by Witold Lutoslawski, and “Bluesette” by Jean “Toots” Theilmans, as arranged by Rob Roy McGregor.


On Thursday, Nov. 15, from 5 to 8 p.m., Andy Shaw Ford in partnership with Ford Motor Company and local charity, Full Spectrum Farms is hosting “Go Further With Ford Night.” During this event individuals can help raise money for Full Spectrum Farms – just by showing up — have a chance to win a new 2013 Fusion, audition for a “Guest Judge Experience” and VIP package from “American Idol,” and test drive the all-new 2013 Ford Fusion.
