In 2019, we kicked off your holidays with real, old-fashioned Christmas spirit, as carolers from the Orcas Choral Society informally raised a joyful noise around the island in several free events open to the public. It was fun to have you join us for this musical fun!
“We love to sing, and carols are especially joyful,” said Lynn Baker, Choral
Society president. “This is our gift to the community. We hope you’ll enjoy
these well-known and well-loved songs.”
