It seems like almost yesterday that three veterans of the American Revolution were honored with appropriate markers at Old Bethel Cemetery south of Jackson, Missouri.

The three patriots participated in the Revolutionary War and between 1797 and 1806 moved to the Jackson area, acquired land, and joined what is now called “Old Bethel Baptist Church.”

“Old Bethel” has been restored, the cemetery refurbished, and the site made accessible for interpreting the early history of Southeast Missouri.

Once the parade finishes and the turkey is gone, it’s time to fully turn our attention to holiday season, and what better way to start than with an evening of music to set the mood.

The Southeast Missouri Symphony Orchestra, Choral Union and University Choir is sure to get you in the spirit November 28 with a performance of Vivaldi’s Gloria. This joyful hymn of praise is a veritable holiday tradition and one that Symphony Conductor Sara Edgerton and Choir Director Barb Lamont say will be a can’t-miss performance.
