Boyertown Area Choral Association presents free holiday concert

The Boyertown Area Choral Association will present its 27th annual Christmas concert on Sunday, Dec. 3, at 3 p.m. at The Good Shepherd United Church of Christ, 35 W. Philadelphia Ave., Boyertown.

The choir is directed by Donna M. House and Donna Jean Marshall with Robin Ward on piano. A free-will offering will be taken with a portion of the proceeds designated for the Margaretta R. Lamb Scholarship.

“Sing We Now of Christmas” is the name of the concert but is also the title of the group’s opening number. The joy of Christmas is also palpable in “Bell Carol,” a version of the seasonal favorite “Carol of the Bells.”

This arrangement includes a four-hand piano accompaniment which adds to the energy of the piece. The touching “Heaven Everywhere” expresses the universal feeling of love at this time of year, while the jazzy “Swing Down, Angels” is sure to get everyone in the spirit. Donna House joins Robin at the piano for a unique rendition of “O Come, All Ye Faithful.”


Audience members are invited to join the chorus for a cookie reception immediately following the performance.
