DUMONT, N.J. -- Elizabeth Synnott and other performers will present the community concert "Home for the Holidays," on Saturday, Dec. 10, at Dumont's Our Redeemer Lutheran Church.
Synnott, a Dumont resident, is producing the show, as well as singing in it. She has a broad musical background, including opera, cabaret and musical theatre.
"The holidays are a perfect time to give back and spread the joy of the season," organizers note, and "'Home For The Holidays' is a very unique concert full of song, laughter and all things celebrating the holiday season, culminating in a massive sing-along."
Other featured performers include Michelle Labetti, Diana McCullough, George Magno, Barbara McEllen, Kenneth Menezes, Esther Um and more, all accompanied by Barbara Ciannella at the piano and Jerry Squillante on percussion. Kenneth Melamed will direct the performance.
"This has been a very trying and dividing time for our town and our country, and we want to unite the community during this season of giving with song, celebration and laughter with 'Home for the Holidays,'" Synnott said.
In addition to bringing our community together, we also want to recognize and celebrate those who give back all year round, the Dumont Volunteer Ambulance Corps and Dumont Social Services.
I hope that everyone will be able to participate in Home for the Holidays. If they are not available to join us on Dec. 10, we are thrilled to take any donation, financial, food or toy, they are able. We can only get stronger by working together.
All the proceeds from "Home for the Holidays" will be donated to the Dumont Volunteer Ambulance Corps and Dumont Social Services, which helps families in need in Dumont.
"The event will be local broadcast on Facebook Live, in order to spread the joy beyond our Dumont community," organizers note.
Tickets are $25, and children under 13 are free with a donation of non-perishable food or a toy. Buy them here, or RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The 75-minute performance will begin at 7:30 p.m. The church is located at 344 Washington Ave.
