Ernest Bloch Bell Ringers &
Anchor Bay Children's Choir

Saturday, December 3, 2005 at 2:00pm
at the Gualala Arts Center

Ernest Bloch Bell Ringers When we think of the Christmas season, we recall most fondly the sound of bells and of children's voices singing the traditional carols. In the annual Christmas concert of the Ernest Bloch Bell Ringers, they will be joined by the Anchor Bay Children's Choir to complete your holiday pleasure.

The Anchor Bay Children's Choir, under the direction of Sue Bohlin, who also directs choirs in the San Francisco Bay Area, will perform "A New Year Carol," and "Pat-a-Pan," plus several other holiday songs.

Following the Children's Choir, the Ernest Bloch Bell Ringers will perform. In addition to ensemble ringing by the fourteen members, there will be community sing-alongs of several children's favorites such as "Jingle Bells." Bill Ballagh will be featured with "Santa is Coming to Town." Sita Milchev will sing "What Child is This?" She will be joined by Jeanne Jackson and Linda Bostwick for a three-part harmony rendition of "Winter Wonderland."

Anchor Bay Children's Choir This event is a benefit for the Coast Community Library and Gualala Arts. Donations will be gratefully accepted at the door.
