NORTHWEST CORNER — This year, Chorus Angelicus will be bringing holiday cheer to homes with its Christmas Angelicus virtual concert on Sunday, Dec. 20 at 7 p.m.
The concert will be live streaming on the Chorus Angelicus website, Facebook page, and YouTube page.
The choir has members from throughout the Northwest Corner, including Winsted and Torrington.
Chorus Angelicus is part of the nonprofit choral organization Joyful Noise Inc.
According to program administrator Bethany Lee, this will be the 30th season for Christmas Angelicus.
She said that the concert will include all choirs from the organization, with singers as young as five-years-old.
“The kids are all very happy that they can still get together virtually and sing,” Lee said. “This pandemic has been hard on everyone, especially for the children. Everyone misses each other and singing together in the same room. It hasn’t been easy, but we are making the best of it as we all try to stay as safe as possible.”
The concert will include Christmas stories, poems, and readings, along with traditional Christmas carols.
The event’s artistic director is Gabriel Lofvall, with Andrew Skinner as the director of technology.
Guest performers include former Connecticut Public Radio host John Dankosky who will narrate the concert, along with guest organist Vaughn Mauren and percussionist Andrew Thomson.

Donations to the organization during the concert may be made at its website.
