Enjoy Concerts and Performances During the Holidays

Photography by Marion Riedl
What would the holidays be without music? We are blessed to have so many opportunities in our area to enjoy church and school choirs, band concerts, and dance recitals. The wonderful Christmas concerts put on by the talented musicians from the area schools and by West Shore Community College are not to be missed. In addition, there are dance recitals and holiday plays to put you in a festive mood.
