The Celtic Tenors – three tenors, one voice.
The holiday spirit is alive and well in Clayton. The Town sponsored a successful Christmas Village and Tree Lighting last week. This Saturday at 3 PM, the Clayton Rotary presents the annual Clayton Christmas Parade. Here at The Clayton Center, we have have been decking the halls in preparation for our annual December show – “We’ve Only Just Begun”: Carpenters Remembered.
Carpenters Remembered is the definitive show celebrating one of the most successful recording acts of all time. Karen and Richard Carpenter sold over a hundred million records in just over a decade and still hold the record for the most consecutive top-ten singles. The dynamic combination of Karen’s voice and Richard’s compositions and arrangements created Grammy-winning magic and won them a worldwide legion of loyal fans.
This Saturday, December 10, at 8 PM, Michelle Berting Brett takes center stage accompanied by her 7-piece band of versatile Nashville musicians to recreate the sound of the Carpenters. In addition Michelle shares stories culled from extensive research and interviews with those who knew Karen and Richard both personally and professionally. The result is a family show and an intimate behind the scenes profile of the pop music phenomenon that defined an era.
All will be merry and bright on Main Street this Thursday evening, December 3, as Clayton celebrates its 25th annual Tree Lighting Ceremony. Thousands will pack Main Street to visit and shop in our local businesses, enjoy music and performances, see Santa, dress up their doggies and ride on a new kiddie train! The festivities begin at 5:30 PM. The tree lighting will be earlier this year, so be sure to head to Town Square by 8 PM! Visit the Town of Clayton online for more information.
The Clayton Center and Town of Clayton offices will be closed on Friday, July 3, for the Independence Day holiday. We may not be working this weekend, but that just gives us more time to enjoy the holiday festivities offered by Clayton Parks and Recreation.
Come on out for the biggest fireworks display around (at dark) on Saturday, July 4! Leading up to the fireworks show, there will be lots of family activities to enjoy – games and rides, a corn-hole tournament, basketball skills competition, free ice cream and watermelon, a Clayton fire truck spray down and a free concert by The Central Park Band. The activities start at 4:00 PM at Clayton’s Municipal Park, 325 McCullers Drive. Click here to learn more.
