Enjoy Christmas favorites and holiday standards at the Voices of Christmas concert on Saturday, December 19 at the historic Ariel-Ann Carson Dater Performing Arts Centre. The 7 pm performance will be featuring the Ariel Children’s Chorus, the Madog Welsh Youth Choir and the French Colony Chorus. The annual concert features vocal groups from the area in an evening of holiday songs.
The Ariel Children’s Chorus, now in its second year, is under the direction of Judith Cavendish. The children will be performing a variety of Christmas songs as well as the novelty tune Text Me Merry Christmas. Children from ages 6-14 who like to sing are invited to join the group on Thursdays at the Ariel 4-5 pm to learn music and performance skills.
Local audiences are used to seeing Seth Argabright on stage and he will be performing O Holy Night, but he is also leading the Madog Welsh Youth Choir. The group’s mission is to keep the tradition of Welsh singing alive in southern Ohio. Under the direction of Greg Miller, the group is made up of middle and high school students from Jackson and Meigs Counties and they will be singing the lyrics in Welsh.
The French Colony Chorus of Sweet Adeline’s International was founded in 2005 by Susan Willis who directs the lively vocal ensemble made of women from around the area who enjoy singing. Their purpose is to entertain the community and they do so in numerous performances and competitions around the area. They invite any woman interested in singing to join them on Tuesday evenings at St. Louis Catholic Church.
Tickets for Voices of Christmas are $10 and are available online at arieltheatre.org or at the box office located at 428 Second Ave. in downtown Gallipolis, Ohio.

Bossard Library proudly announces the 2016 Adult Winter Reading program themed “Exercise Your Mind…Read!”, whereby adults earn prizes for reading throughout the cold winter months. This fun-filled program, co-sponsored by the Friends of Bossard Library, begins on December 27, when registration begins at the Library. For every five books read, participants will receive one entry into the Library’s seven grand prize drawings. After participants have read fifteen books, they will receive a versatile Bossard Library book bag, while supplies last. Qualifying books (including eBooks and audiobooks) must be borrowed from Bossard Memorial Library.
The goal of this program, which will run through March 20, is to encourage reading throughout the winter months. While this particular program is for adults, it is important that children are exposed to a variety of books in the home and that children see that reading is an important part of their parents’ and grandparents’ everyday lives. For these youth, our Library offers an annual Summer Reading Program, which will commence in June 2016.
For more information on this program, please contact Rhonda McGuire at the Library at 740-446-7323.
