Langley’s long-running, inclusive community chorus is tuning up for its popular annual Yuletide concerts.

So This is Christmas features a blend of traditional, classic and contemporary carols and musical selections that are sure to share the joy of the season with audiences.

The choir has been around since 1992, when a small group of singers from Langley got together to form a choral group, calling themselves the Langley Community Chorus.

They wanted to sing and have fun, as well as provide entertainment to the Langley area communities.

Members come from all over the greater Vancouver area and the Fraser Valley. They share a love of music and a desire to improve their voices and musical skills.

Their two seasonal public presentations – the Christmas and spring concerts – always sell-outs.

The choir also performs at hospitals, seniors’ residences, fundraising events, parties and other local events.

Membership has grown from 14 voices and one music director nearly 20 years ago to a fall 2011 choir of 78 singers plus current music director, Anita Comba.

Audiences can catch them three upcoming concerts. So This is Christmas is presented Nov. 26 at at Willoughby Christian Reformed Church, 20525 72 Ave., Langley, starting at 7:30 p.m.

There’s a matinee performance Sunday, Dec. 4, at Sharon United Church, 21562 Old Yale Rd., in Langley (the concert begins at 3 p.m.

A second matinee is planned for Sunday, Dec. 11 at St. Dunstan’s Anglican Church, 3024 264 Street in Aldergrove, also at 3 p.m.
