Special to The PREVIEW
Whether a full-time resident of Pagosa or a visitor to our little piece of paradise, Christmas in Pagosa Springs is a very special time. Snow on the mountain and downtown stores decorated in the season’s best, our small community really knows how to spread Christmas cheer.
One such activity is the holiday concert offered by the Pagosa Springs Girls Choir (PSGC).
PSGC will be presenting “Christmas in Pagosa” on Dec. 6 at 7 p.m. The annual performance will be held at the Community United Methodist Church and will include many audience holiday favorites.
Along with PSGC, the concert will include Perry Schjolin as the featured soloist. Schjolin is much-loved in Pagosa and he is sure to put concert-goers in the Christmas spirit. Noel, a quartet of professional musicians in Pagosa, will also join the festivities.
PSGC is a community choir of girls from fifth grade through eighth grade. While most of the girls attend public school, some of the singers are home-schooled. The choir is in its sixth year of existence, after a stellar five years in this community.
PSGC director Linda Parker said, “It has been thrilling to watch these girls and this organization grow and to have this community support us in such splendid ways. There are many very talented young artists in Pagosa who need an opportunity to perform and we appreciate how this community has been so supportive of their efforts. The girls have worked very hard in preparing their holiday music, and they are eager to wow their Pagosa audience again this year.”
Listeners are in for a treat when they hear these talented young ladies perform. Please make plans now to come see and hear some of the best that Pagosa has to offer for the holiday season. We hope you’ll join PSGC on Dec. 6.
Admission to the concert is free, but donations will be gratefully accepted.
