It’s easy to get caught up in the hubbub of the season, but there is "nothing wrong in this old world some little song won't cure." Sierra Gold Chorus, the Auburn Chapter of Sweet Adelines International, will present "A Musical Cure for Christmas Chaos " at its annual Christmas show at 2 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 8, at Combie Bible Church , 22924 West Hacienda Drive, Grass Valley , near Lake of the Pines.
The Sierra Gold Chorus joined by the Christmas Chorus, under the direction of Barb Tincher, sing traditional and modern Christmas songs. Several quartets, a double quartet and two special featured acts will add to the “musical cure.”
Singers from Rocklin are Billie Cox, Sharon Stratakos and Sue Barkley. The award-winning Anticipation Quartet and the Forest Lake Christian School Chamber Choir will also perform.
Anticipation Quartet is lucky to combine barbershop music with family – two sisters, one daughter and one close enough to be considered family! All four members are “barbershop brats,” having grown up with barbershop. After just a couple of months singing together, the quartet made a splash at the Sweet Adelines regional competition in Reno, last April, winning third-place medals.
The Forest Lake Christian School Chamber Choir, directed by Lyndsay Barham, has received numerous awards in various competitions across the U.S. This group of talented upper-division singers never fails to impress their audiences with not only their sound, but their message of hope. The group's repertoire varies in a cappella work as well as anthems and classical music.
This popular family show has been a sellout in past years.The best buy are presale tickets: adults $15, youth (16 and under) $7. Tickets at the door will cost $18 for adults and $7 for youth. Tickets may be purchased from any member of the chorus or by calling Jackie Dow at (530) 885-3801.
Every September, Sierra Gold Chorus invites women of the community to join the Chorus in singing at the annual Christmas Show. This year, there are 10 women in the Christmas Chorus. However, women are welcome to attend rehearsals throughout the year at 7 p.m. Mondays at Burback Hall, DeWitt Center , 11577 E Ave., Auburn.
