As with every December over the past 31 years, the Salt Lake Men’s Choir will present their Christmas concert of holiday favorites. Titled “Welcome Christmas,” the concert will include a wide variety of songs, from “African Star Carol” to the Irish “Wexford Carol.” “Cold and Fugue Season” is a clever parody on Bach’s famous “Fugue in G Minor” that will have the audience in stitches. The haunting “The Darkest Midnight in December” is a great contrast to the wacky title song “Welcome Christmas,” that the Whos sang in The Grinch Who Stole Christmas.
Tickets can be purchased on their website or from any choir member for $10. The show is general admission, and tickets can be used at any of the three performances. The Sunday show is generally the largest attended, so showing up early will get the best seat.
Once again, concert-goers are asked to bring a nonperishable food item to be donated to the Utah AIDS Foundation Food Bank.
WHEN: Friday, Dec. 13 and Saturday, Dec. 14, 7:30 p.m.; and Sunday, Dec. 15, 4 p.m.
WHERE: First Baptist Church, 777 S. 1300 East
TICKETS: $10, SaltLakeMensChoir.org and any choir member
