Music Through the Ages

The annual concert of the San Miguel Singers will include music from the 16th through the 20th centuries and will be sung by members covering more than a 50-year age span. Love of music and singing together is the hallmark of this choir; some have been members since its inception more than 12 years ago. Although many of the pieces presented will be known to the audience, such as “Sleighride” and “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas,” some will be new.
12th Annual Holiday Concert
Musical Event Featuring Choir and Handbells
Fri, Dec 11, 5pm
St. Paul’s Church
Age is no barrier to learning new things, and the choir will sing in Spanish, French, and Latin as well as in English. Participating in the choir is fun and good for the soul as well as good for the mind. Some of the members also participate in the Handbell Choir, where each member plays just a part of the music but must integrate with the others to make a seamless whole.
This concert is free but, as in the past, donations will be accepted to benefit a local charity. This year it will be ALMA, the home for the elderly. We will also bring the concert to them December 9 and will be singing for the Rotary Mid-Day December 15. Come and enjoy the music in the great acoustics of St. Paul’s Church!
