Sequim Community Christmas Chorus shows this weekend

SEQUIM — After 33 years, members of the Sequim community continue to gather and sing some of their favorite Christmas classics for one special weekend.

The Sequim Community Christmas Chorus, consisting of more than 60 singers, will perform the program “Rejoice! A King is Born” in three shows at 7:30 p.m. Friday and 3 p.m. Saturday and Sunday at Sequim Seventh-day Adventist Church, 30 Sanford Lane.

Tickets are $5 and available at the show or in advance at the Sequim-Dungeness Valley Chamber of Commerce, 1192 E. Washington St., Bauer Interior Design, 119 N. Sequim Ave., Forage Gifts & Northwest Treasurers, 121 W. Washington St., and Elliott’s Antique Emporium, 135 E. First St., Port Angeles.

The non-denominational program will feature such sacred songs as “Peace, Peace” and selections such as “Make a Joyful Noise.”

Soloists this year include Patty Shoop singing “In the Bleak Midwinter,” Stacey Fradkin “The Alfred Burt Carols,” and Stephanie Clark “Heaven Gonna Touch the Earth.” Clark also directs the song “The Lamb of Christmas.”

Gary McRoberts directs the program for the 12th year and is accompanied by pianist Donna Grubbs, music coordinator and pianist for Trinity United Methodist Church.

This year members of the Sequim Community Orchestra join the show including Beth Pratt and Heather Titterness on violin, Phil Morgan-Ellis on viola, Emma Mitchell on cello and students from the strings Kids’ String Program. They’ll play songs such as “Away in a Manger” and “The First Noel.”

Proceeds from the show benefit the children’s program. Organizers said last year the show gave $1,000 to the program.
