The Valley Troubadours invite you to their Christmas concert this Sunday, Dec. 1, at Epworth United Methodist Church at 4:00 p.m.
This is the 44th annual Yuletide offering by the 28-member male chorus. The program will begin with traditional Christmas selections like “Good Christian Men, Rejoice!” and “Still, Still, Still.” More contemporary songs will include “Believe,” from the movie, “The Polar Express,” and a jazz arrangement of Christmas standards, “A Swingin’ Christmas.”
This concert marks the Valley City debut of new director John Monilaws. Maestro Monilaws succeeds Lance Drevecky, who retired last spring after 19 years leading the organization.
As a special feature the Enderlin Children’s Choir will present several selections before the intermission.
There is no admission, but a free-will offering will be received.
The Valley Troubadours will reprise the concert at the Sheyenne Care Center Monday, Dec. 9, at 6:30 p.m.
Dec. 10 the group will join the Valley Voices, our local women’s chorus, in performing at the annual Courthouse Carol Sing at 7:00 p.m. The Carol Sing is an opportunity for the community to gather at the Barnes County Courthouse to sing Christmas carols and hear a few selections by the Troubadours and the Valley Voices. The acoustics in the courthouse rotunda are extraordinary; everyone who sings there sounds like Pavoratti. All are welcome!
