‘Let’s Have a Christmas Celebration’

The Pagosa Springs Community Choir is enthusiastically preparing the music for the 2009 Christmas concerts.

Director Larry Elginer has selected a combination of old favorites, such as “Silent Night” and “It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year,”, along with some exciting and moving new selections.

New on our program this season are “I Saw Three Ships,” “Festival Gloria,” a piece in Latin, and our theme song for this year, “Let’s Have a Christmas Celebration.”

The Jazz Choir will present two completely new selections, in a program that includes “Christmas Time is Here” from “A Charlie Brown Christmas,” a quiet song, featuring close harmonies.

The choir and its activities are guided by the board of directors, with some new members selected last spring. This year’s board consists of the following choir members: Sue Diffee — president; Larry Baisdon — vice president; Perry Schjolin — secretary; Charlotte Jones — treasurer; Becky Walker, and Dave Swindells, board members.

The concert will be presented at the high school auditorium at 7 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 10, a and Sunday, Dec. 13, at 4:00 p.m.

As always, there is no charge for Community Choir concerts, and you don’t want to miss it.
