CRESTVIEW — Every other year the community gets a double dose of pleasurable holiday spirits from the Crestview High School chorus, and 2013 was the year for us to be treated.

As if the previous weekend's Madrigal Dinner wasn't enough, the 120-voice chorus's always enjoyable Christmas concert was just icing on the gingerbread.

Under the able hand of choral music director Kevin Lusk, the kids took Thursday night's audience through a winter wonderland of song, including old favorites, new music, and favorites given a new twist.

As they've done in the recent past, the Destiny and Chanticleer show choirs alternated during the first set. A standout number for the former was "Mr. Santa," sung to the tune of the 1954 pop song "Mr. Sandman."

Chanticleer's doo-wop version of "Santa Claus is Comin' to Town" rounded out the set as a toe-tapping follow-up to the ensemble's equally fun version of "Jingle Bells" that opened with a smooth solo by Paolo Hora.
