Singing Co. presents free “It’s Christmas” concert Dec. 14

The Singing Co. of LaPorte County will present its annual “It’s Christmas” Concert, a musical medley of holiday merriment, on Friday, Dec. 14. The concert will take place at the Holdcraft Performing Arts Center, 1200 Spring St., Michigan City, beginning at 7 p.m. (Doors open at 6:30 p.m.)

This free holiday concert, open to all, will feature a 70-voice Children’s Chorus, a 50-voice Adult Chorus, and the 40-piece Singing Company Symphony Orchestra.

Under the direction of Matthew Nelson, the concert features holiday favorites such as “Carol of the Bells” and “Feliz Navidad,” a reimagining of “The Twelve Days of Christmas,” and entertaining selections from the Disney film “Frozen,” showcasing soloists from the Children’s Chorus.

The Singing Co. of LaPorte County, a nonprofit organization, offers opportunities for children in the 2nd through 8th grades to foster a love of music and find their unique voice. During weekly rehearsals and performances, children develop music appreciation, vocal skills and connections with peers. Since its inception two years ago, The Singing Company’s Children’s Chorus has been invited to perform key selections at the HealthCare Foundation of LaPorte’s Holiday at the Pops Concert as well as other local venues.

The newly inaugurated Adult Chorus welcomes members who are high school aged and older; all that is required is a passion for singing.

This year’s concert is sponsored in part by American Licorice, The Unity Foundation of LaPorte County, and The HealthCare Foundation of LaPorte.
