Starting at noon, from Dec. 2 to Dec. 6, the choirs will bring their Christmas songs to the AnteChamber for a music-filled 45 minutes. Each day the performances will close with an opportunity for guests to participate in a “festive sing-along.”

On Dec. 2, students from George Jay Elementary and McKenzie Elementary will sing. On Dec. 3, Marigold Elementary and Torquay Elementary student choirs will take the stage. Student choirs from Strawberry Vale Elementary School and École Margaret Jenkins will sing on Dec. 4 and finally, Glenlyon Norfolk School and Gordon Head Middle School students will close out the week of seasonal tunes.
