Very fabtabulous. Totally worth walking for an hour to attend. I hope to see more of them in the future.

What a fantastic concert! The choirs all sounded magnificent, their voices ringing and surrounding Boutell Concert Hall. A good size house and responsive audience showed their appreciation at the end with a long ovation. Special shout out to the students in Chamber Choir--the First Noel was tremendous! Bravo to Eric Johnson and his team for putting together such a wonderful event!
