RIDGWAY – The Concert Choir of Elk County worked their magic in ushering in the holiday season as they performed their "Classic Christmas" concert on Tuesday evening.
St. Leo Church in Ridgway hosted the event while a second concert takes place Saturday at the St. Mary's Church at 7:30 p.m.
This year, the choir's repertoire consists of several lighter numbers intermixing Christmas carols into numerous medleys. Various traditional pieces will also be performed.
Gloria Almquist-Shull, choir director, said the concerts mark the start of the Christmas season for many people.
The concerts are free and open to the public and last just over one hour. A freewill offering is being collected during the midway portion of the concert. A reception follows each concert in the parish's social hall.
