The Northwest Civic Orchestra adds to the spirit of the holiday season and the annual community celebration of Powell’s Country Christmas by performing a medley of music from around the world.

The “Christmas Around the World” themed concert is Saturday, Dec. 2, at 7 p.m. in the Nelson Performing Arts Auditorium. Area residents are invited to enjoy an evening of well-known holiday classics and a few lesser-known musical pieces, too.

“This year, we’re inviting concertgoers to leave the traveling to us and come enjoy the journey,” said Maurine Akin, violin instructor at NWC.

Additionally, there will be food, decorations and photos from many different countries for those who attend to enjoy.

Throughout the performance, audience members will be treated to all-time favorites such as “Stille Nacht,” “Sleigh Ride,” selections from “The Nutcracker” and “The Hallelujah Chorus,” as well as different takes on familiar pieces.

Cost to attend is $10 for adults, $5 for seniors and free for children.

The concert is set to open with the debut performance of the newly created beginning orchestra group.
