For one evening every year, different voices in the community gather to sing the same tune!

And, if you are lacking confidence in your singing skills here is some encouragement from Will Ferrell’s character Buddy in the movie Elf.
Buddy: “The best way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear.”
Other Elf: “Thanks, but I don’t sing.”
Buddy: “Oh, it’s easy. It’s just like talking, except louder and longer and you move your voice up and down.”
We look forward to seeing you there!
