Next week might be Thanksgiving - but for many of us, rehearsals have been underway since before Halloween...getting ready for Christmas!  Please mark your calendars for some very special events being held right here in Osceola.

Dec. 13 at 6:30 p.m., the St. Croix Valley Christian Community Choir will be presenting the Christmas cantata, “The King Is Here,” at the Osceola Methodist Church.  The concert is all about celebrating with Joy the birth of Jesus.  It’s a beautiful mix of contemporary and traditional Christmas music.   There is no charge for the concert, but a free will donation will be taken for Blessing Baskets.  What a wonderful evening - fill your hearts with the joy that comes from celebrating the Birth - and give some joy as well!   

Then just two days later, Dec. 15 at 3:30 p.m. come to the Osceola Intermediate School for an old fashioned community Christmas concert.

Join The Indianhead Chorus, The SCV Christian Community Choir, Voices of the Valley, Peace Lutheran Church Choir, Bethesda Lutheran Church Choir and more local musicians/choirs as they each perform a couple selections - and then combine to sing some beautiful Christmas music as a large group!  It’s going to be a glorious afternoon!  

If your church, club, organization, etc.  would like to participate, there’s still time.  Just let me know and we’ll add you to the program!   Music will be provided for the group numbers.

Dec. 22 at 3 p.m., you are invited to Osceola Community Church where Voices of the Valley will be presenting their annual Christmas Concert and sing along. 

This is always such a special concert.  It will certainly fill you with Christmas Spirit.

Whether it’s a school concert or a community concert, there are people working hard to learn and perfect music to share with their audience.  The greatest show of appreciation for their hard work is to come see them.  You’ll be giving a gift to the musicians/choirs who are performing and giving yourself a gift as you enjoy the concerts being held in our community.    Have a wonderful Thanksgiving and a Blessed Christmas.
