Hattiesburg group brings mini holiday concert series to downtown

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - The Historic Hattiesburg Downtown Association is serving up several lunchtime mini holiday concerts at various downtown restaurants.

For the third year the association is teaming with William Carey University's Winters School of Music to bring lunch goers Sounds of the Seasons.

The mini concerts are held Tuesday and Thursday at noon rotating though the many downtown restaurants.

Thursday afternoon featured Patty Malone on oboe and Mark Malone on Piano at The Pastry Garden on Walnut Circle. The Shed featured "Carpenter Wood" singing many holiday favorites.

"It's just a perfect fit for William Carey to fill that gap for us and they have done it so brilliantly," said Betsy Rowell, from the Downtown Association. "The restaurants are packed so it has a very positive economic impact both in the summertime series and of course during the holiday season. It gets everyone in a festive mood and it's just wonderful."

The series continues Tuesday, December 7th at Walnut Circle Grill, Brownstone's and Depot Coffee House/Bistro. The concert series will continue through December 16th.
