KAYSVILLE – The Davis Master Chorale wants to give Davis County residents the gift of music this Christmas.
The group will perform their annual Christmas concert, “Come Let Us Adore Him,” on Friday, Dec. 14, at 7 p.m. in the Davis High School auditorium. Admission is free, although donations are welcome.
“We just love to get together and sing,” said Carroll Weaverling-Bowery, president of the Davis Master Chorale. “Our choir truly sings for the love of singing, and the concerts are a way for us to share that love.”
The theme from this year’s concert comes from “Come All Ye Thankful,” which the choir will close the concert with. They’ll perform an arrangement by Dan Forrest, a favorite of group members.
“(‘Come All Ye Faithful’) portrays the indescribable joy of the faithful as they gather ‘this happy morning’ to greet their newborn King,” said Forrest of the song.
The choir, which performs under the direction of Jim Johnson, started practicing for the concert long before the holiday season rolled around.
“We’ve been singing Christmas songs since September,” said Weaverling-Bowery with a laugh. “We’ve been decking the halls for three months already.”
The Davis Master Chorale is an all-volunteer, non-auditioned community choir made up primarily of Davis County residents. All donations to the group go towards keeping the concerts free.
“I have so much admiration for all 75 people in this group who can get together each season, once a week, and create such an amazing sound,” said Weaverling-Bowery. “If anyone wants to help keep us afloat, that would be great.”
Davis High School is located at 325 S. Main Street in Kaysville. For more information, visit davismasterchorale.org.
“We just really enjoy singing,” said Weaverling-Bowery. “We’d do it even if we didn’t have a concert.”
