NM Historical Society to Present Wabash Musicale Christmas


On Monday, December 10, the North Manchester Historical Society is pleased to host the very talented Wabash Musicale for a program filled with entertainment and Holiday music.  The program will be held in the Assembly Room at Timbercrest Retirement Center, 2201 East Street, at 6:30 p.m.  The program is open to the public at no cost. 


 “Christmas In Our Town” is the theme of the Christmas program to be presented by twenty-five members of Wabash Musicale. Come listen to very talented women from local communities, and enjoy holiday music with good friends.

Wabash Musicale is an organization of women who love music and meet once a month during the school year to perform for each other. Evelyn Magner founded Wabash Musicale in 1967 to encourage musicians to continue to practice and to enjoy singing and playing their instruments. Currently there are three charter members still active in the group. For nearly 50 years, the club has presented a Christmas program that is open to the public at the Woman’s Club House in Wabash. The program at Timbercrest features vocal soloist Kris Stephens, clarinetists Sarah See and Barb Biehl, pianists Eileen Dye and Susan Vanlandingham, and a vocal sextet. Carolyn Eppley directs the twenty-two member chorus. Beth Perkins wrote the script for the show.

It will be a night to get away from the Holiday hustle and bustle and simply enjoy the season through song and friendship.
