The Pagosa Springs Community Choir will begin Christmas Concert rehearsals Sept. 10 at 6:30 p.m. in the high school band room. Concert dates are Dec 6, 7 and 8.

The Pagosa Springs Community Choir will begin rehearsals Sept. 10, for the 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 “Come on, it’s Christmas.” Director Dan Burch has already picked the music, to include the special inspirational selections “African Star Carol,” “Still of the Evening” and “French Chorale of Praise.” The choir will again be accompanied by Venita Burch.

Our Jazz Ensemble will open the concert with special arrangements of “Sleigh Ride” and “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas.”

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. The choir will not perform a spring concert in 2014, as there are too many conflicts for our director, accompanist and many choir members. If you are planning to be a part of the Community Choir, our Christmas concert will be your only opportunity until next fall.

Rehearsals are held in the high school band room. The first rehearsal, on Tuesday, Sept. 10, will begin at 6:30 p.m. for registration, and rehearsal will be held from 7 to 8:30.

Subsequent rehearsals will be held each Tuesday from 7 to 9 p.m.

Each member is asked to pay $20 for the cost of music and binders.

Concert dates are Dec 6, 7 and 8.

If you have questions, or would like additional information, call Betty Schwicker at 731-3363.
