Choristers to sing holiday concert Dec. 9
As part of the Christmas in Newport celebration, the Newport Navy Choristers, under the direction of JoAnn Loewenthal, will present "Christmas in Song" on Saturday, Dec. 9, at 7:30 p.m. at St Lucy's Church, 909 West Main Rd. in Middletown.
The Newport Navy Choristers are composed of active duty, retired, reserves, military dependents, and civilian personnel. They have raised over $350,000 for worthwhile local charities for over 50 years.
All proceeds for this year's concert will go toward benefiting the Fort Adams Trust, which is a non-profit organization formed to work with the state of Rhode Island as a tourist attraction supplying educational exhibits on the history of the fort. Restoration is underway to make this the finest example of this type in North America.
Tickets can be purchased by calling Laurie Labrecque, special events director, at 841-0707 or by contacting any chorister member. Tickets cost $8 for adults and $5 for seniors over 62 years and children under 12 years of age, and $20 for families. Tickets can also be purchased at the door. To purchase tickets in Jamestown, call Roxie Smith at 423-2376.
