Lakes Region Singers present two Christmas concerts

GILFORD — The Lakes Region Singers will again present two performances of its Christmas Concert this year. The first program will be held on Friday, December 20 at 7:30 p.m., plus an afternoon program on Sunday, December 22, at 3 p.m. Both concerts will take place at the First United Methodist Church, on Route 11-A in Gilford.

"Our musical line-up will offer something for everyone this time," said Director Karen Jordan, "and we'll showcase more soloists and instrumental accompanists than ever before."

The Adult Chorus performance will open with the joyous 'Let All Creation Celebrate' featuring the Hallelujah Handbell Choir. Following will be a stirring mixture of serious anthems like 'In the Bleak Midwinter' (with Phil Breton on oboe), 'Carol of the Magi' (with Mimi Jones on cello), and 'I Wonder as I Wander' (with Allison Withan on flute), plus rollicking treatments of 'Jingle Bells', 'Swing a Christmas Carol', and the Ukrainian folk tune 'Sleigh Bells'. Piano accompaniment features the talents of Kelly Cleveland of Belmont.

The Youth Chorus will then take the spotlight with lively versions of 'Santa Claus Is Coming to Town', 'In Winter', and 'Sparklejollytwinklejingle' from the movie Elf. Rounding out the Adult Chorus program are such poignant pop favorites as It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas and Believe from the movie Polar Express. The grand finale will pull out all the stops with 'Joyful All Ye Nations, Rise!', combining Youth Chorus, Adult Chorus, handbells, trumpet, trombone, organ, and piano.

A suggested donation of $8 per person or $15 per family of four will be taken at the door to help cover expenses. There will be homemade refreshments at each intermission, along with a visit from Santa.
