The Chicago Childrens Choir will join the Rockford Symphony Orchestra for two Holiday Pops performances Dec. 13-14 at Coronado Theatre. Concert times are 8 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 13 and 3 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 14.
From a handful of kids in the First Unitarian Church of Chicago on the citys south side in 1956, the Chicago Childrens Choir has grown to become Americas largest, most comprehensive choral-music training program for young people. The choir has been featured on the Oprah Winfrey Show.
The choir will team up with the symphony to perform holiday favorites and festive songs of the season.
Tickets ($6 students, $15-$36 general admission) are available by calling the Centre Events box office at 968-5222. Contact the RSO office at 965-0049 or visit www.rockfordsymphony.com for more information.
