The Pagosa Springs Community Choir will begin rehearsals Sept. 13 for this year’s annual Christmas Concert. We are again planning a concert filled with joyous music to welcome the Christmas season.

The theme for this year’s concert is “We Need a Little Christmas.” Director Dan Burch has already picked the music, to include the special inspirational selections “Silent Night, Holy Night,” “Carol of the Kings” and “Believe.” The choir will again be accompanied by Venita Burch.

Our Jazz Ensemble will offer special arrangements of “Cool Yule” and “The Christmas Song.”

We look forward to all of our previous singers returning, but we also hope to have new members join us. If you enjoy singing and would like to join this very talented group, we look forward to meeting you.

Rehearsals are held weekly in the high school band room. The first rehearsal on Tuesday, Sept. 13, begins at 6:30 p.m. for registration, and rehearsal is held from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Each member is requested to pay $20 for the cost of music and binders. Subsequent rehearsals are held each Tuesday from 7 to 8:30 p.m.

Concert dates are Dec. 2, 3 and 4. If you have questions or would like additional information, please call Pattye Holton at 731-1495 or Betty Schwicker at 731-3363.
