Community Choir celebrates the perfect Christmas gift

| December 7, 2015

COSHOCTON – Every year, many people in the community start off their Christmas season by attending the Coshocton Community Choir’s annual Christmas concert. This year was no exception as the three choirs, the Community Choir, Youth Chorale, and the Children’s Choir, performed to a packed auditorium. More than 200 musicians from all over the area come together every first Sunday in December to start the Christmas season by reminding people of the true meaning of Christmas. This year, the theme was “Gifts of Love” and focused on connecting with the perfect gift of Christmas given by God through the birth of Jesus Christ instead of trying to find that perfect gift for everyone on your Christmas list. The audience was also invited to participate in the concert during the singing of “Angels We Have Heard on High”, “What Child is This?” and “Joy to the World”. The choirs are accompanied by pianist Dickie Barrick and the Roscoe Brass Quintet. If you missed this performance, the Community Choir will also perform a selection of their Christmas concert at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church in Newcomerstown on Sunday, Dec. 13 at 7 p.m. The church is located at 121 S. College St. The choir’s spring concert entitled, “Lead On!” will be Sunday, April 24 at 3 p.m. in McKinley Auditorium at Coshocton High School.
