The Woodland Chamber Singers will present their annual holiday concert at 7 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 15, and 2 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 16, at the Pioneer High School Performing Arts Theater, 1400 Pioneer Ave. in Woodland

The 75 members of the chorus, along with Artistic Director Lenore Turner Heinson and accompanist Lori Jarvey, will present a program of sacred, secular and downright silly holiday tunes, with both traditional and new arrangements. Following tradition, Bob Edmondson will direct the audience in a sing-along of popular carols.

Opening with the rousing “Here We Come A’Caroling,” followed by “Sing We Now of Christmas” and the a cappella selection “In the Bleak Midwinter,” the concert will showcase not only the vocal talents of chorus members, but their instrumental and theatrical talents as well.

Small ensemble selections with solos include “The Gloucestershire Wassail,” “Infant Holy, Infant Lowly” and “The 12 Days After Christmas” in a dramatized version of the original seasonal favorite.

Also on the program are “Good King Wenceslas” for a men’s ensemble and “Santa Baby” for a women’s ensemble. In addition, ” ‘Twas in the Moon of Winter Time,” a Huron carol, features two tenor soloists, a flute solo and guest student percussionists. And “Ose Shalom,” a haunting Hebrew piece, features the full chorus along with mezzo soprano and clarinet solos and a guest string trio.

The other big news for the chorus is its recent acceptance to perform as a showcase choir in the New York City 2014 Choral Festival at Carnegie Hall. As one of four invited choirs, the Woodland Chamber Singers will present a 40-minute program in their first out-of-state festival concert experience.

Fundraising is now under way for this opportunity. Those who would like to contribute may send tax-deductible donations to The Woodland Chamber Singers, Carnegie Hall Fundraising Drive, c/o Steve McWilliams, Treasurer, 627 First St., Woodland, CA 95695.

Admission is $5 for ages 12 and up, and free for children under 12. The theater is wheelchair-accessible. Tickets may be purchased at Watermelon Music, 207 E St. in Davis at 527 Main St. in Woodland; at the theater box office one hour before the concert; or by sending an email to Silvia.hillyer@gmail.com.
