‘A Family Christmas’ with Souhegan Valley Chorus in Amherst this weekend

Thursday, December 5, 2013

AMHERST – Join the Souhegan Valley Chorus for an evening of holiday music at 6 p.m., Sunday, Dec. 8, in the Souhegan High School auditorium.

The concert is titled “A Family Christmas” and features special guest, the Milford High School Band.

Familiar favorites and seasonal choral pieces will be performed under the direction of Jennifer Erdody and members of the chorus will share stories of holiday songs that have special meaning to them.

“Christmas is so much a time when families make memories and establish traditions together. This year’s program stems from the family traditions of our own chorus members,” Erdody said. “From a Christmas spent in Germany, Lo, How A Rose E’er Blooming, to singing Frank Sinatra with brothers and dad, Jingle Bells, these songs are memories shared from the hearts of our chorus members.”

The Milford High School band will join the chorus on “A Family Christmas Spectacular,” a medley of favorites, such as “Over the River and Through the Woods” and “Up on the Housetop.” The band will also perform faily favorites “Sleigh Ride” and “You’re A Mean One, Mr. Grinch,” with soloist Conrad Koch. SVC is excited to welcome the band to the stage and share this wonderful evening with them and their families.

Kimberly Vars Whitehead accompanies the chorus of more than 70 members from the Milford-Amherst area and surrounding towns. The evening will also feature selections by acappella groups, including The Valleyaires, A La Carte and Just in Time. This concert will have something for everyone.

Admission is $15 for adults, $10 for seniors and students, and is free for children 12 and younger. Tickets can be purchased in advance at The Toadstool Bookshop in Milford, from chorus members and at the door on the day of the performance.
