Albany- It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas, and soon it will sound a lot like it too.

"We are quite thrilled to have once again a wonderful gift to our community where they all can get together and sing and just celebrate the spirit of Christmas," says Diane Cunningham of the Albany Symphony Orchestra.

Tuesday members of the Albany Symphony Orchestra made sure the Civic Center got a holiday face-lift just in time for the 13th annual Peppermint Pops.

The Farkas family helped save the holiday concert last year after it had been cancelled, but this year organizers say it's been smooth sailing.

"We had some problems last year with funding, but this year we've had wonderful support from the community. We've had several people to give us generous gifts so that we could make sure this goes on every year," says Cunningham.

Not only will South Georgians get the chance to sing-a-long to traditional carols, but they'll have a chance to listen to high quality symphonic music.

"We are so fortunate in this community to have such a high quality wonderful orchestra that we have here and I think that the more that people realize that, the more they'll know that we are very much the good life city because of the Albany Symphony."

The cost of admission is just one non-perishable food item that will be distributed to needy families in Southwest Georgia.

The music will begin at 7:30 Tuesday night. If you can't make it to the Civic Center, you can watch the a live broadcast of the concert on WALB beginning a 8 PM.
