A musical welcome to the Christmas season, the evening will begin with well-known holiday music, followed by music from beloved Christmas films, like "It's a Wonderful Life" and "How the Grinch Stole Christmas."

The program is free and open to the community. Donations of non-perishable food items for the St. James Food Bank will be appreciated.
