Mark your calendars — the Payson Choral Society’s Christmas presentation of “Christmas Is Coming!” directed by Daria Mason with accompaniment by Lisa Tan comes to the Payson High School Auditorium Saturday and Sunday, Dec. 15 and 16. Performances are at 4 p.m. Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday.
Come, get into the Christmas spirit with the sounds of popular favorites, “It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas” and the beautiful “Coventry Carol.” A cozy Irving Berlin Christmas medley surely will make you wish to return home to a warm fire by which to open just one of your gifts.
Soloists for the evening, Sonja Sandoval, Ed Strain and Shelley Wayland will add a special sparkle to this glorious experience.
Tickets may be purchased in advance from Choral Society members, at the Rim Country Regional Chamber of Commerce and the Payson Public Library. Tickets are also available at the door before each concert. Concert tickets are $15 at the door, and $10 if purchased in advance. Children and students up to age 18 are admitted free.
