Happy Holidays with Friends!

This weekend, the Chinook Winds present their holiday concerts, Happy Holidays with Friends!

Friday, Dec 18 @ 7:00pm at the CMR Museum (400 13th St N)
Sunday, Dec 20 @ 2:00pm at the First Congregational Church (2900 9th Ave S)

All Sinfonia and Youth Orchestra musicians receive complimentary admission!

Both concerts are 60-minutes in length and feature Dwight Fontenot on percussion and a group of vocalists from the community to provide some caroling. There will also be an audience sing along! In addition to that, Sunday's concert ends with an ornament-making workshop. It's an excellent way to begin the Christmas week!
