Carmichael Christmas Choir
This choir forms seasonally under the direction of Christiana Quick-Cleveland, to sing Christmas Carols in the Carmichael area. Registration begins on November 1st. There is one orientation session before Thanksgiving, and four 2-hour rehearsals in early December. The group then decides on dates for 2 to 3 caroling outings.
Carols are prepared in 3 and 4-part harmony, and offered in a variety of settings: care and rehabilitation centers, neighborhoods, parking lots, street corners, stores, Christmas parties, events - eliciting smiles, warming hearts, and sharing our precious capacity for connection.
