I will notify you when the music binders are ready. We have new arrangements of “O Come, All Ye Faithful” and “Hark, the  Herald Angels Sing.”  We will also be adding “Ding Dong Merrily on High.”

There will be some solo violin parts available on  “O Come, All Ye Faithful” and “Ding Dong Merrily on High.”  Two  of our members, Jay Riedl and Sandy Duhon, will perform double duty by singing a few selections.

Thanks for your participation and dedication to the LCSO. I am still receiving compliments about our summer concert.

Let’s work together to have a great Christmas concert.
