Formal and fun holiday songs featured in Thursday concert

PORT TOWNSEND — The Choral Belles, an all-woman chorale, will perform at 7 p.m. Thursday for Trinity United Methodist Church’s annual Christmas Candlelight Concert.

Doors will open at 6:30 p.m. at the church, 609 Taylor St.

Admission will be by a $10 donation; children will be admitted free. The Choral Belles, directed by Mary Lou Montgomery, have become a Christmas Tradition at Trinity and will provide an evening of sacred and secular Christmas music.

The traditional favorite carols of the season will make the audience want to sing along with the Chorale — and they just might invite you to do so, according to a news release.

This program includes additional Christmas Carols not normally performed at other venues, as well as a Special Musical Interlude.

This year, “Con Brio Trio” will perform “Largo” from Concert No. 3 in D minor by Bach. This will be performed by Barbara Hinchliff, piano; Valerie Hinchliff, flute; and Miles Vokurka, clarinet. The Choral Belles Christmas Program will include favorite carols such as “Still, Still, Still,” “Hush,” a traditional spiritual and always a favorite, “Feliz Navidad.”

In addition, some fun carols titled “Hot Chocolate” and “Zat You, Santa Claus?” will add to the merriment of the evening.

The proceeds from this concert will benefit the Jefferson County Toys for Tots Foundation.
