WUWF invites you to its annual Tidings of Comfort & Joy concert on Monday, December 23, 2019 at First United Methodist Church in downtown Pensacola – with performances at 6:00 p.m. and 8:00 p.m.

Cost: $15 per person (tax included, non-refundable) 

You will receive an email confirmation upon ticket purchase.  Check in at the door under your name.  Doors open 30 minutes before performance time.  (If you are unable to attend, simply have a friend check-in using your name).

The concert is a favorite local tradition for many and the new larger venue of First United Methodist Church will provide a comfortable and accessible setting for more guests to attend.


Built in 1908, the impressive gothic-revival structure with classic brownstone exterior and over 100 individual sections of beautiful restored stained glass is a landmark structure in downtown Pensacola. 

Tidings of Comfort & Joy is a concert of seasonal music both religious and secular, traditional and contemporary, expertly mixed and chosen by WUWF’s Dale Riegle. After the hubbub of the season, Tidings makes for a perfect quiet evening with family and friends.

Concert performers include: the Perdido Brass (Dale Riegle, leader and trumpet; Jonathan Martin, trumpet; Stuart Kinney, horn; Bret Barrow and Don Snowden, trombones); Sewell Griffith, soprano; Stephanie Riegle, flute; Maeanna Naffe, violin; and Tina Buran, piano.
