“The Heart of the Holidays” Sunday, Dec. 1 | Allegro Women’s Ensemble
“The Heart of the Holidays” will be brought to life during a Dec. 1 performance by the Allegro Women’s Ensemble, together with the Plateau Women’s Chorale, all under the direction of Kathee Lundberg.
The concert is planned for 2:30 p.m. in the Enumclaw High School auditorium.
The 20-plus singers will perform classic and fun Christmas music and will be joined by the Enumclaw Chamber Choir as well as the Agape Bell Ringers and members of the Gateway Concert Band on selected pieces.
To top it all off, there will be holiday treats during intermission.
This concert will benefit Neighbors Feeding Neighbors, an organization devoted to feeding homebound senior citizens in the Enumclaw area. The ensemble and chorale, along with other nearby sponsors, absorb the cost of the presentation so 100 percent of all donations can be given to the NFN program.
