Elgin Choral Union, Elgin Youth Symphony Orchestra combine for holiday performance
Elgin—”A Proper English Christmas” will be performed by The Elgin Choral Union in collaboration with the Elgin Youth Symphony Orchestra. This holiday season, enjoy the unique music and song of the English to get into the holiday spirit. Students from the oldest orchestra, the Youth Symphony under the direction of Music Director Randal Swiggum, will be performing.

Two performances are scheduled: Saturday, Dec. 19, at 7:30 p.m., and Sunday, Dec. 20, at 3:30 p.m., in the Blizzard Theater at Elgin Community College Arts Center on the main campus of ECC, 1700 Spartan Drive, Elgin. Tickets can be purchased for $22, $17 for seniors, and $14 for students by calling the box office at (847) 622-0300, or online at tickets.elgin.edu.

Concert organizers are also asking the attendees bring a non-perishable food item to donate to the All People’s Interfaith Food Pantry located at 256 Chicago St., Elgin. The tough economic times have been felt by everyone, and food pantries are struggling to meet the needs of all who come to them. All donations are welcome. The pantry can always use canned meats, tuna, chili, ravioli and canned fruits.
