Flautist Kristina Ostberg (Amy Leonard for The Cullman Tribune)

CULLMAN, Ala. – Filling Seventh Street Baptist Church with angelic voices, Cullman Women Sing presented Sing Noel Tuesday to an audience full of joyful hearts. The choral ensemble of area women gathers sheerly for the love of singing and twice a year shares that love with the community.

Standout flautist Kristina Ostberg performed a moving rendition of “O Holy Night” and the audience sang along to “Hark! The Herald Angels Sing” and “O Come, All Ye Faithful.” The solo descant during “Noel” was sang by Holly McLeod.
