MOUNT VERNON, N.Y. -- Concert-goers did indeed have “The Most Wonderful Time” at Mount Vernon’s recent holiday bash, say organizers.
The free annual concert was presented on Saturday, Dec. 5, at the Mount Vernon High School.
It featured gospel recording artists The Jenkins Brothers and special guest performances by others, including Tony Award winning actress, singer, and stage director Phylicia Rashad.
There was no charge for admission, but concert-goers left donations of food and toys for local families in need.
“Music brings people together, especially around the holidays,” said schools Superintendent Kenneth R. Hamilton prior to the concert.
“This is a great way to build community spirit and help the less fortunate in our community with donations of food and toys,” he added.
