The Marshall Music Club plans to serenade the public at its Marshall Sings Carols event, scheduled today at Memorial City Hall from 6-8 p.m.

“We’re going to sing all the Christmas music, and we’re trying to go through all the classic songs to make sure we get everyone’s favorite,” Crosby said.
This is the band’s second year holding the event, with the first taking place in 2019. Crosby said the band had to put the event on hold last year due to COVID-19, but hoped to make some progress. event an annual celebration. .
Marshall Music Club members Brenda Ford and Anne Leslie Tijerina will lead the show in song as member Melinda Boyd accompanies the duo on piano. Other performances by friends of the organization may also take place during the show.

“We are very excited,” she said.
