Choir selling Christmas CD

choir-CDIf you are looking for a last-minute holiday gift or stocking stuffer then Marietta College’s Dr. Daniel Monek may have something that will fit your budget and taste.

Monek and the Marietta College Concert Choir have released their first Christmas recording, Christmas with the Concert Choir & Orchestra. Recorded live during last year's concert, the CD is available for $20 by contacting the music office (740) 376-4696 or any member of the Concert Choir.

Monek said when the CD was recorded, the Concert Choir had nearly 800 in attendance.

“The Concert Choir and I are very excited about the release of this CD. The Christmas with the Concert Choir event was begun four years ago and has quickly grown to be one of the most popular events in the area,” Monek said. “In addition the students are hoping to support their efforts to accept an invitation to perform in several of the United Kingdom’s prestigious cathedrals and venues this May, including St. Paul’s Cathedral in London and St. Giles Cathedral in Edinburgh. All of the proceeds from the CD sales will support this trip.”

This year’s Christmas with the Concert Choir is at 8 p.m., Sunday, Dec. 16, at St. Mary Catholic Church in Marietta.
