It just isn’t Christmas until you’ve experienced the Peoria Area Civic Chorale’s An American Family Christmas. Get into the Yuletide spirit with beautiful music from classic carols like “The First Noel” and “Angels We Have Heard on High” to secular holiday favorites like “Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree” and “It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas.” Plan ahead, pick the date that fits perfectly into your family’s holiday plans, and come experience the Civic Chorale’s spectacular An American Family Christmas at Five Points Washington on either December 15 & 16, at 7:30 p.m. or Sunday, December 17th at 3:00 p.m.

Shelby Jones Wehrenberg

Each performance will feature the Civic Chorale, the Civic Chorale’s Youth Chorus, a performance by one of our Young Artist Competition winners and our special featured soloist for Christmas 2017, Shelby Jones Wehrenberg. Shelby is a lyric soprano who is a product of Illinois Wesleyan, Butler University, and the American Institute of Musical Study in Graz, Austria. While at Butler, she studied under Thomas Studebaker, the Eureka native who served as the chorale’s spring 2017 guest soloist. She has enjoyed an international career, performing the role of Musetta in La Bohème at the International Opera Performing Experience in Mercatello sul Metauro, Italy, and Zerlina in Mozart’s Don Giovanni with the Varna International Opera Academy in Stara Zagora, Bulgaria. Jones Wehrenberg will be performing four pieces, including a collaborative arrangement of Ave Maria with the Civic Chorale.

As always, our Friday night performance will also include performances by two outstanding, 90-voice Youth Choruses, the Children’s Festival Chorus and the Junior High Festival Chorus, representing young talented singers from throughout Central Illinois.

For Saturday’s performance, you can enjoy a ride to An American Family Christmas on us! A Peoria Charter Coach bus will pick riders up at 6:15 p.m. at 2 Chez restaurant at 7815 N. Knoxville and at 6:30 p.m. at Brienzo’s Wood Fired Pizza 5901 N. Prospect Rd. Suite 2. Each table of diners at 2 Chez who mention PACC will receive a free bruschetta appetizer, too!
