Mallory Cox of Suffolk helped spread holiday cheer as a member of the Brass Ensemble on Sunday, Dec. 8, by taking part in the Emory & Henry Music Department’s annual Christmas at Emory Concert.

The Concert Choir and Chamber Singers filled the Memorial Chapel with beautiful renditions of “Still, Still Night” arranged by Jackson Berkey, “What Sweeter Music” by John Rutter, “This Little Babe” by Benjamin Britten, and “Here is the Little Door” by Herbert Howells.

Organist Robert J. Greene Jr. was joined by brass ensembles in accompanying the carols sung by the choirs and congregation. The brass musicians entertained with seasonal hymns and fresh arrangements of classic Christmas music.
