The Summit Community Orchestra is seeking business partners to decorate a holiday tree for its third annual Festival of Trees at Warren Station. Keystone Neighbourhood Company will provide the 7-foot trees, so each business may decorate with ornaments and lights as desired on Wednesday from 3:30-8:30 p.m. A promotional sign may be included. The trees will be sold by silent auction to benefit the SCO at a holiday concert on Sunday. If you would like to support fine arts in the community by decorating a tree, contact Freddy Powell at (970) 668-3257.
Boy Scout Troop 187 in Breckenridge is holding its annual Christmas Tree Sale through Dec. 24 or while supplies last.
Get a fresh, beautiful tree and support your local Boy Scouts. Varieties include Scotch Pine, Concolor Fir and Fraser Fir, and are available in sizes ranging from 5-12 feet. Wreaths and tree stands are also available.
The lot location is again at the Riverwalk Center/Tiger Dredge Lot which is on the corner of Park Avenue and Washington in Breck. Hours of operation are Monday through Thursday from 4-6:30 p.m., Friday from 4-7 p.m., Saturday from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Celebrate the joy and hope of the holiday season with the Lord of the Mountains Sanctuary Choir as it performs the cantata “Tapestry of Light,” A Celtic Christmas Celebration. This free choral concert is presented by Summit Music and Arts as part of its 2012-13 Concert Series on Sunday, Dec. 16, at 5 p.m. at Lord of the Mountains Church in Dillon. LOTM music director, organist, and choral director Len Rhodes will direct the choir from the piano.
“Tapestry of Light” is a cantata containing traditional carols and lush Celtic melodies, scripture readings and candlelight. Familiar tunes and thoughtful narration underscore the uplifting theme of the work. This jubilant cantata contains recognizable melodies such as “I Saw Three Ships,” “Sussex Carol,” “Scarborough Fair,” “Greensleeves,” and “Londonderry Air,” which are not ordinarily associated with Christmas. The concert will also contain some other seasonal music. There will be a reception following this cantata.
