The “Musical Gifts for Christmas” concert will take place on Saturday, December 18 at 7 p.m. at North Canyon High School Auditorium, located at 1700 E. Union Hills Drive.

This family-friendly event will include a visit from Santa and Mrs. Claus, as well as a medley of some Christmas favorites, and a sing-along. Music will include arrangements from Trans-Siberian Orchestra, Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker Suite, Anderson’s Sleigh Ride, and Balamage’s Festive Fanfare.

“Our annual Christmas concert is always a favorite for our audience,” Music director and conductor Kevin Kozacek says. “We perform a lot of classic Christmas pieces, including a community sing-along. Attending this concert is the perfect way to get into the holiday spirit. Santa will guest conduct one of his favorite pieces this year. You’ll need to attend to find out what song he absolutely loves!”
