Mount Vernon Hill church filled for Mount Vernon Academy Christmas Concert 
Story by Heidi Shoemaker

It was nearly standing room only at the Mount Vernon Hill church in Mount Vernon, Ohio, for the annual Mount Vernon Academy (MVA) Christmas concert this past Sabbath.  David Niño, MVA music director, put together another inspirational program entitled “The Hope” containing custom-arrangements for orchestra and choir, handbells, the MVA wind ensemble and the MVA Echoliers with orchestra. Professional musicians from around Knox County joined other regional musicians and MVA alumni, performing alongside current MVA musicians and vocalists.

“A fantastic blessing as usual! What talent everyone involved shared for God’s glory,” shared Doreen Vaughn, Hill church member. “It was beautiful,” says Ann Owen Dickerson, MVA alumni.
