PLAINVIEW – The Wayland Baptist University School of Music is reaching out to one of their own using the annual American Family Christmas Concert to benefit Hannah Brown and her family.

Dr. Kim Brown is a vocal professor in the School of Music who has taken a leave of absence this semester to care for daughter, Hannah. Her husband, Dr. Daniel Brown, also works at Wayland. Hannah is battling a rare form of cancer.

Scheduled for Friday, Dec. 1, in Harral Memorial Auditorium the American Family Christmas Concert will also feature Hannah’s Santa Land where kids have the opportunity to meet Santa Claus, get their face painted and snack on popcorn and candy canes with Santa’s helpers. Santa will be there at 5:45, he will take a break at 6:45 to enjoy the concert and then spend a little more time with the children following the performance.

Admission to the concert is on a donation basis and all proceeds benefit the Brown family.

The concert will begin at 7 p.m. and feature the International Choir, Wayland Singers Chorus and the band. The audience will also join in the singing for Christmas carols throughout the concert. A reception will be held in the hallway outside of the auditorium immediately following the concert.
