WESTPORT — The gift of song was given to the community Sunday afternoon when the Westport Historical Society presented its free annual holiday concert downtown at the Seabury Center.

“It’s all about our community and building our community,” said Sue Gold, executive director, who first began the initiative with Westport-based Mary Ann Hall’s Music for Children and Beyond.

“This is our 12th year doing the concert,” said owner Mary Ann Hall, who presented a show of talented performers featuring a plethora of classic holiday songs.

“I’m thrilled and honored to have them perform,” Gold said.
