Community Christmas Concert planned Saturday in Staples

Four choral groups — The Colla Voce Girl’s Choir, the Central Minnesota Boys Choir, the Staples Area Women’s Chorus and the Staples Area Men’s Chorus — featuring more than 100 singers will combine to present a Community Christmas Concert at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 8, at Sacred Heart Church in Staples.

The unique acoustical qualities of the Sacred Heart Church sanctuary provide a resonance to fill the hall with a feast of festive auditory delights.

The concert will feature each choir performing as a solo ensemble and in combination with each other. The audience will be entertained with familiar and not-so familiar songs of the season.

Seating is limited. Tickets can be purchased online at, from chorus members or at the door (if still available). Tickets are $8 for adults, $4 for students, $24 per family in advance; and $10 for adults, $5 for students and $30 per family at the door.
