Christmas In The Valley is a video that features small towns in the Shenandoah Valley. On Saturday, Nov. 3, 2007, a camera crew recorded a large choir singing "Silent Night" in our church as part of the Dayton Town segment. The choir was made up of singers from the Shenandoah Conservatory of Music "Dayton Alumni" as well as others from the Methodist, Mennonite, and Brethren Churches in Dayton. Anne Hill directed the choir which was accompanied by a harpist. The video will be broadcast on WVPT public television either at the end of November or the beginning of December. Plans are to distribute it nationwide on PBS.
Our church was also featured in another public television video produced earlier this year entitled Road Trip To History (Town of Dayton) that seeks to preserve the history of towns up and down the Shenandoah Valley along U.S. Route 11. Don Smith played the 1927 Moller four manual pipe organ and told of the rich historical connection with the Shenandoah College and Conservatory of Music which was located in Dayton through 1960 when it moved to Winchester. Both videos are professionally produced by Wayne Bronson of Shepherdstown, W.Va. Dayton Mayor Judy Way thanks us for the use of our church building in the production of these noteworthy videos.
