This year, kick off your holidays with real, old-fashioned Christmas spirit, as carolers from the Orcas Choral Society raise a joyful noise at three free Eastsound events.
“We love to sing, and carols are especially joyful,” said Lynn Baker, Choral Society president. “This is our gift to the community. We hope you’ll enjoy these well-known and well-loved songs.”
Catch the carolers at:
Orcas Island Public Library – 2 p.m. Friday, Nov. 29.
Island Market – 2 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 30 – while you shop.
Orcas Senior Center – 1 p.m., Monday, Dec. 2 – after lunch.
Caroling is just a warmup. The following weekend the full 50-voice Orcas Choral Society sings its winter concert, “Comfort and Joy,” with fresh arrangements of old favorites, new tunes and audience sing-alongs. Concerts are at the Orcas Center at 7:30 p.m., Saturday, Dec. 7, and 2 p.m., Sunday, Dec. 8. Tickets are $18, $5 for students, at 376-2281 or orcascenter.org.
