Alaska Children’s Choir
St. John Lutheran Church
440 E. Elmwood Ave. Palmer
December is a busy time of year for many folks, hustling and bustling from one holiday party to the next. The shops are filled with consumers searching for the perfect gifts for their loved ones. Post offices have lines out the door with bundled up grandparents waiting to mail off that one final package. All too often, amidst the chaos of the season, we forget to take a moment to breathe and find our own peace.
Every December, the Alaska Children’s Choir puts on a holiday performance for the community. The repertoire spans across traditions to encompass music from all cultures. Both Christmas and Hanukkah are celebrated with song, as well as winter favorites such as “Jingle Bells” and “Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer”. While the majority of pieces are performed in English, other languages are featured including French, Latin and Hebrew.
The choristers look forward to every performance as an opportunity to share their hard work and talents. This fall, they performed at the Alaska State Fair and opened a Harlem Globetrotters game with “The Star Spangled Banner” in Anchorage. Their annual holiday concert will be held in conjunction with Colony Christmas festivities. After enjoying the parade and fireworks in downtown Palmer, the Alaska Children’s Choir invites you to warm up with a joy-filled concert by our talented youth.
Sing We All Noel will be held at 7pm at St. John Lutheran Church (440 E. Elmwood Ave. Palmer) on Saturday, December 9, 2017. Tickets are $10 a person and can be purchased with cash or check at the door. Perhaps this December, that elusive peace can be found in the harmonies of such beautiful, young voices.
The Choir is always looking for additional singers. Auditions will be held over the winter break for students that wish to participate in the spring semester. For more information about the concert or joining the program, please contact Director Jessie Eddings via either email or phone: firstname.lastname@example.org, 907-982-5467.
