The Blaine schools music department will present two holiday concerts this month. The first is set for Thursday, December 10 and features high school musicians. The second is scheduled for the following Tuesday, December 15, and will showcase performers from Blaine middle school.

Along with the school groups, choral music director Andy Harmening has three openings in each concert for community musicians or groups to perform.

The Blaine Fine Arts Association will be collecting food for the Blaine Food Bank, and donations will also be accepted to help fund the Chamber Choir’s trip to New York City next April. Refreshments will be served at the
end of each concert.

If your group would like to be part of these holiday performances please contact Harmening at 332-8226, ext. 1223, or at aharmening@blainesd.org with your group’s name, preferred performance date and contact information.
