The Tahoe Choir Christmas concerts are coming. From traditional carols and seasonal songs to spirituals and choruses by men and women, the 36th annual concerts promise to get audiences in the holiday mood.
The concerts will feature such music as “The Holly and the Ivy,” Sammy Cahn’s “The Christmas Waltz” and “Carol of the Bells,” and other Christmas favorites.
Titled “A Holiday Potpourri – A Little of This, a Little of That,” the choir, in conjunction with the Lake Tahoe Community Chorus, will perform three concerts. The first two are at 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday in the LTCC Duke Theater, and the third is at 3 p.m. Sunday at St. Theresa Catholic Church. Parking is free.
Tickets are $10 for adults and $8 for children and may be purchased in advance at the college bookstore and from choir members. Tickets will be available at the door a half-hour before each concert.
Joining the Tahoe Choir will be the college pops choir in a combined number from “The Polar Express.” They also will sing two more songs.
The Community Care Center of Tahoe will conduct a public donation sale Thursday through Saturday. The sale will take place from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the center, 2011 Lake Tahoe Blvd., in the former Mikasa building. All are welcome. Proceeds will go to the Angora fire survivors.
