Muhlenberg Community Chorus Holiday Concert

This year’s Holiday presentation will feature a "BRASSY" Muhlenberg Community Chorus with horns, handbells and chimes. Our recipe starts with seasonal favorites like Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas and Toyland; add a few new arrangements of carols with brass and handbell accompaniment; stir in Holiday songs from Hollywood films - Baby It’s Cold Outside and White Christmas, and expect to have an afternoon of non-fattening sweets. Come - enjoy the festivities!
