This is certainly a great time for Christmas concerts throughout the area.
The coffee house concert at Iowa Lakes Community College Thursday night was one for the record books. A large crowed packed The Max for the concert that featured both vocal and instrumental entertainment. There were quite a few walk-on entertainers too, including a very unique and crowd-pleasing version of Feliz Navidad.
Thursday night also saw some great performances by members of Many Voices Choir, Tuba Christmas and kids from Roosevelt third and fourth grades. If that didn't get you in the Christmas spirit, nothing would.
Many Voices will perform again 7:30 p.m. tonight at St. Patrick's Catholic Church at 14 N. Ninth St. in Estherville.
At 2 p.m. Sunday, hear Estherville Lincoln Central students perform at Roosevelt Auditorium at 321 N. Sixth St.
North Union High School will hold its concert 7 p.m. next Monday in the gymnasium in Armstrong. If you haven't heard the sounds that come from this larger group of students formerly from Armstrong-
Ringsted and North
Sentral Kossuth, you're in for a huge surprise.
Later in the week, the ELC middle school vocal concert will be held 7 p.m. next Thursday at Roosevelt.
You'll probably hear some music on the antique organ - along with some singing - at Christmas on the Farm 1-4 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 8 at Peterson Point. The historic farm is just south of the Emmet County Nature Center on County N40 east of Wallingford.
On Monday, Dec. 10, Demoney Elementary first and second grades will perform at 6:30 p.m. in Roosevelt. Get there early. It's always a packed house.
Later in the Month, on Dec. 18 ELC middle-school band students will perform at 7 p.m. in Roosevelt.
