Community Christmas concert set for Dec. 4

LA JARA — The Gathering Our Communities in Christ Christmas concert is Dec. 4 in the Centauri High School gym at 3 p.m. This special concert brings the community choir, youth choir, elementary school's honor choir, and families together to celebrate the season of Christ's birth.

The choir group began about 30 years ago, with people from Conejos County and originally called the Coalition of Churches. People now come from all over San Luis Valley to share their love of music, while creating new friendships.

Rose Archuleta, one of the choir members said, "Being a part of this group has brought us so much pride and satisfaction."

The concert will feature spiritual music. People can bring items for the local food bank to the concert.

The choir season begins in October for the Christmas concert. Practice is on Thursdays at 7 p.m. at the United Church in La Jara. Everyone is welcome to join.
