The Cannon Beach Chorus will present its winter concert “Home for the Holidays” at three separate locations on the first weekend in December. The performances will occur on Friday, Dec. 1, at 7 p.m. in the Warrenton Christian Church; Saturday, Dec. 2, at 7 p.m. in the Cannon Beach Community Church; Sunday, Dec. 3, at 3 p.m. in the Nehalem United Methodist Church.
Under the leadership of Dr. John Buehler, conductor, the concert program will include the Christmas Oratorio by Camille Saint-Saëns, a nine-movement oratorio that proclaims the Christmas story by featuring chorus, soloists, and ensembles. The soloist and ensemble movements will feature singers within the chorus and chorus pianist, Dr. Susan Buehler, will accompany the entire program.
The chorus was founded in 1988 and will soon celebrate its 30th anniversary which will highlight a commissioned choral work from composer, Daniel Gawthrop, to commemorate the group’s anniversary year.
The admission fee to each concert is $10 for adults with students, age 16 and under, admitted free of charge if accompanied by an adult.
