Chorale offers Christmas Concert
Last updated 12/2/2006 at Noon
One of the great pleasures of living in the Friendly Village of Fallbrook is sharing holiday celebrations with friends and neighbors. Members of the Fallbrook Chorale are delighted to contribute their collective voice to these events.
Recently they were heard at the downtown Veteran’s Day Celebration and at the lighting of the Christmas tree at Village Square. They can be found caroling on Main Avenue on Sunday afternoons during December, singing at the Woman’s Club Christmas party and appearing at the Grand Tradition for the Rotary Club.
The chorale, which consists of approximately 30 members, has been preparing for the Christmas season for months and is looking forward to this year’s Christmas Concert, which will offer a wide variety of musical styles ranging from the traditional spiritual favorite “O Holy Night” to a lighthearted secular number written by the late Steve Allen called “Cool Yule.”
The Fallbrook Chorale, under the direction of Eric Peterson, is accompanied by an accomplished local pianist, Jean Dixon, who has been playing for this group for many years. This year they will be joined by drummer Steve Traugh and bass player Mark Phelps for a few numbers as well.
The CAST Show Choir, comprised of children ages 8-12, will also add their talents to the afternoon under the capable direction of Sandra Kopitzke.
The concert will be held December 16 at 2:00 p.m. in the Bob Burton Center for the Performing Arts on the Fallbrook High School campus. Tickets will be available at the door or can be purchased in advance at a reduced price at Major Market, Dry Cleaning Station or from any member of the Chorale.
The Chorale meets on Tuesday evenings from 7:00 to 9:00 at the First Christian Church on the corner of Mission and Fig. New members are always welcome. Call (760) 731-0279 for price of tickets or for more information on the Chorale.
