You won't want to miss the Arcata Interfaith Gospel Choir and the AIGC Youth Choir performing their annual Holiday Concert, 7 p.m., Saturday, December 9, at the Arcata Presbyterian Church, 11th and G Streets.
The Holiday Concert will feature a spirit-lifting selection of holiday gospel music. In honor of our Latino brothers and sisters, AIGC will sing Las Posadas in Spanish. Las Posadas is a traditional Mexican Christmas song cycle which tells the story of Mary and Joseph searching for lodging.
Tickets are $15 in advance and $18 at the door. Buy your tickets online and save! Tickets are also available at Wildberries Marketplace (747 13th St, Arcata) and The Works (434 2nd St, Eureka). Children 5 and under enter for free.
The Holiday Concert will be the first concert performed in the Arcata Presbyterian Church since being restored after the devastating arson-set fire of September 16, 2017.
Funds for the Humboldt State University, Latinx graduation will be requested at the event. Latino students will make up more than half of the HSU graduating class of 2018.
