The ladies of the Southern California Damekor will perform a Jul concert Wednesday, Dec. 19, at 7 p.m. at Pala Mesa Resort.

FALLBROOK – Southern California Damekor's big Jul concert is Wednesday, Dec. 19, at 7 p.m. at Pala Mesa Resort. The concert is free and will begin with a traditional candlelit Lucia procession.

Dec. 13 is the actual "Day of Sankta Lucia" and serves as the introduction to the Scandinavian Christmas season, ushering in a season of feasting, merriment and hospitality. Lucia was a medieval saint who carried food and drink to the hungry in Sweden during a time of famine. She could be seen in her white gown and crown of light, a symbol of light and hope.

The concert includes many traditional Jul songs, which have been arranged by a talented choir member, Lorian Dunlop. Many of the songs are performed a cappella while others are accompanied by flutes, violin, cello, guitar and harp. This year's program includes a few songs played on Whitechapel handbells. Mette Gaal will again be reading the Julevangeliet, which is the Christmas scripture, in Norwegian.

In addition, the Aquaterra restaurant at Pala Mesa will be offering a 25 percent discount on dinner for those attending the concert. Reservations are recommended; call Pala Mesa at (760) 728-5881. In order to receive the discount, diners must present the attached flyer.
