The King Elementary Cool Cats Choir, which has 175 members in grades 3-6, will be performing at the Layton City annual holiday lighting ceremony on Nov. 22 at 6 p.m. at the Ed Kenley Amphitheater (403 N. Wasatch Drive). The group will also be performing at E. G. King on Dec. 9, and at Layton High the evening of Dec. 10.
“We’ve been learning a wide range of music,” said Denise Kotter, who leads the choir.
“The three we’ll be performing at the lighting ceremony are a little more on the lively side, and we’ll have students introduce the songs.”
The choir is also learning a song with Latin in it as part of their upcoming concerts.
“There’s not much, but it’s a good place for elementary kids to start,” she said. “I think it’s really neat.”
The choir, which doesn’t require auditions to join, is designed to give everyone the chance to share in the music.
“I love to see the children participating who may never get another opportunity to be in a choir,” said Kotter. “It’s my biggest high.”
The Layton lighting ceremony, which will also include performances by other school choirs, is free and open to the public. The light display will be on from dusk until 11 p.m. daily through Jan. 1.
