Once again, the Choral Society, in collaboration with Generation Church, will host a family friendly holiday celebration, featuring music, refreshments, and a visit from Santa. The fun begins at 5 PM on Sunday, December 11 in the Rex Theatre (18 N. Palafox St.) Admission is free, although you’re encouraged to bring non-perishable food items to help stock Manna Pantries.

The Society’s Ensemble, directed by Isabelle Peterson, will lead you in favorite carols and songs with the lyrics projected on the theatre’s big screen. The hour of music making will also include brief performances by the Ensemble, the Choral Society itself, and special guests from the Gulf Coast Chorale, directed by Brenda Smith. In addition, you can enjoy holiday treats and the opportunity to snap selfies with Santa. The suggested attire is your ugliest holiday sweater.
