Talented Trio Joins Takoma In Holiday Concert

Christian musical artists Mark Lowry, Michael English and Stan Whitmire teamed up for a special concert Tuesday evening at the Niswonger Performing Arts Center.

The concert was hosted at the Niswonger Performing Arts Center by Takoma Regional Hospital as a benefit for the Takoma Foundation.

This is the fourth time that Christian comedian, singer and songwriter Mark Lowry has performed in Greeneville for Takoma Hospital's annual holiday concert.

Lowry's initial show in Greeneville, in 2004, was the first show at the then-newly-opened Niswonger Performing Arts Center. His second performance at NPAC occurred in 2007 and his third in 2010.

This was the first year, however, that Lowry has been joined at NPAC by Christian singer Michael English.

During the show, Lowry noted that English was the first artist to record the beloved Christian music standard, "Mary, Did You Know?", for which Lowry wrote the lyrics in 1984.

Lowry and English were also joined in their performances by talented pianist Stan Whitmire.

This year, the Takoma Foundation decided to put the proceeds from the holiday concert toward the support of wellness initiatives in the community through the hospital's new Wellness Program, said Takoma President and CEO Daniel Wolcott.

The Takoma Wellness Program has "grown tremendously since its start last year," Wolcott noted in a letter in the event program.

"We at Takoma Regional Hospital would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our sponsors and all of you who purchased tickets to this event," he said.

"By doing so, you have made it possible to further expand our wellness program not only for our local community, but for surrounding communities as well," Wolcott added.

Wolcott extended thanks prior to the concert to the event's organizers, the Foundation's board of trustees and each of the sponsors who helped make the holiday concert possible.

Sponsors included: Adventist Health System; Greeneville Light & Power System; Landair; C&C Millwright; Morning Pointe of Greeneville; Fitzpatricks; the Greeneville Astros; Consumer Credit Union; Super Service Center, Myers Street Service Center, Mosheim Service Center; Watauga Pathology Associates, PC; Drs. Candi Overholt and Katy Gray, of Takoma Medical Associates; General Morgan Inn; Life Care Center of Greeneville; T.A. and Carla Bewley; Equiscript; the Women's Center of Greeneville; Artistic Printers; Charter Media, Brown Brothers Paving and American Greetings.

The event was coordinated by Renee Lowery, director of the Takoma Foundation, and Takoma volunteers Gwynn Southerland and Lori Dunn.
