"Merry Little Christmas" Dec. 18 will help send Yellowjacket choir to 'Big Apple'
Over a year ago the Perham High School Concert Choir was invited to perform Gabriel Faure's Requiem at Carnegie Hall.
Planning began shortly after the request was accepted. This January 15-19, 37 choir students and their chaperones, under the direction of Kevin Kosiak, will travel to New York City to perform.
As a fundraiser for this trip, the choir students would like to invite you to celebrate this Christmas season. This Friday, the Perham Concert Choir will be holding a concert entitled "Merry Little Christmas."
The concert will start at 7:30 p.m. and will be held at the Perham High School Auditorium. The concert will include Christmas solos, duets, and ensembles.
The event is free, but a free will donation will be taken to help lower traveling costs for each student. Choir members are hoping the public comes to support these students as they raise money for a rare opportunity.
