Enjoy the beauty of the holidays at one of the oldest homes in Alabama. The variety and authenticity of antiques and Christmas decorations that furnish the Conde-Charlotte Museum reflect Mobile's history under the five flags of nations that governed the Port City: France, England, Spain, the Confederacy, and the United States. The Conde-Charlotte Museum is open Wednesday - Saturday, 11 a.m. - 3:30 p.m. The museum will be closed November 23-24th and December 24th. Near the banks of the Mobile River, the Condé-Charlotte Museum began its life as Mobile’s first courthouse and jail, eventually becoming the beloved home of the Kirkbride family. It now stands as a historic house museum, full of antiques and period furnishings, which reflect Mobile’s history under five flags: French, English, Spanish, Confederate and American. Let our guides lead you through the holidays of days gone by during the area’s complex history under its various European sovereigns, its entry into the American territory, and its position as a Confederate city. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the Condé-Charlotte Museum is owned, preserved and operated by the National Society of Colonial Dames in America in the State of Alabama.

Start your holiday celebration with the Choral Society of Pensacola, as it presents excerpts from Handel’s beloved masterpiece "Messiah."
Hosted by the Cathedral of the Sacred Heart, the Society’s 100-voice chorus will perform with organ and chamber orchestra under the direction of artistic director Peter Steenblik. In addition, the concert will showcase four of Pensacola Opera’s Jan Miller Studio Artists as soloists: Hayley Abramowitz, Kayla Nanto, Randy Ho, and Scott Lee. The Choral Society will present two performances of "Christmas Messiah" in the Cathedral's beautiful sanctuary, one on Friday, December 2 at 7:30 pm and one on Saturday, December 3 at noon.
The program features part one of "Messiah," the so-called Christmas portion, which includes the story of the angels’ appearance to the shepherds. The program also features the famous “Hallelujah” chorus and the work’s concluding “Amen.”
To begin the concert, Steenblik has selected four additional works for the season: “Hark, the Herald Angels Sing,” with music by Felix Mendelssohn, arranged by Mack Wilberg; “Glory to God in the Highest” from Sergei Rachmaninoff’s "All-Night Vigil;" “Domine, Fili unigenite” (Lord, only begotten Son) from Vivaldi’s "Gloria" and “In the Bleak Midwinter,” Harold Darke’s classic setting of Christina Rossetti’s poem.
