‘Glorious Christmas’ concert here sold out

After being on sale for only two weeks, tickets are all gone for the upcoming concert entitled “Glorious Christmas” on Dec. 17 at the Townshend Theatre.
“We are sold out,” choir director Diane Maxey said late Monday. “There might be an odd ticket here and there. Those who want one will have to call me.
“I’m going to try and get some tickets from my choir members if they have any left over,” she added. “I’ve got a list of people wanting them.”
Maxey can be reached at 274-7309.
The Yuletide collaboration between Maxey’s Fort Frances Choraliers and the Borderland Community Orchestra (directed by Katherine Williams) is a series of four shows—and the one here was expected to be a sell-out.
But Maxey said she those who want to see the concert still can attend one of the other three. “We really want people to come out and see us,” she enthused.
The first of this series of concerts will be held this Saturday (Dec. 9) at Donald Young School in Emo, with the second slated for this Sunday (Dec. 10) at Backus Auditorium in International Falls.
The third will be held next Saturday (Dec. 16) at Lake of the Woods School in Baudette, Mn.
Tickets for these three concerts will be sold at the door on the evening of the performances.
The cost is $10 for adults and $7 for children under 12, except at the Backus show, where it’s $10 for adults, $5 for children under 12, and $25 for a family.
All four concerts will start at 7 p.m.
Part of the proceeds from these concerts will go to charities in the individual communities and the rest to cover expenses for the orchestra and choir.
The Fort Frances Museum will get part of the proceeds from the show here.
As previously reported, these concerts will take the place of the Christmas cantata normally staged each year at St. Mary’s Church by the Fort Frances Choraliers.
