MISHAWAKA, IND., Nov. 10, 2016 – Recording artists David Britton and Jean Watson, along with the Nashville Bandoliers, will present the “Sounds of the Season” Christmas concert on Saturday, Dec. 3 at 7 p.m. on the campus of Bethel College, in the Everest-Rohrer Chapel/Fine Arts Center – Auditorium. The concert will be a unique blend of musical styles that will delight the audience with a variety of Christmas favorites.
World-class Baritone and Nashville recording artist, David Britton, brings a unique sound to his audiences, by blending his big voice with a signature orchestral rock instrumentation. This approach is the result of Britton’s eclectic musical heritage, which included drumming in a rock band through high school and college, before beginning a career in opera. Over the past couple of years, Britton has emerged onto the scene with albums which take full advantage of both the classical training as well as the rock style creating music that is at times both intimate and grandiose.

Watson is an internationally acclaimed singer-songwriter and classically trained violinist, whose musical style is eclectic and features Celtic-infused violin and vocals. She is passionate about bringing hope to the hopeless through words and music. Although she has performed in majestic cathedrals and grand concert halls, her favorite venues are homeless shelters and prisons where she feels her music is most needed.
