All is Calm, All is Bright

The Itasca Community Chorus held its last concert of the calendar year at the Myles Reif Performing Arts Center in Grand Rapids on Sunday. The theme was Christmas and featured holiday classics sung by the whole choir with some solos and ensamble acts scattered thoughout the sing. The Christmas music set the mood for the afternoon, along with the non-perishable food donations made outside the Wilcox Theater for the Second Harvest North Central Food Bank.
