CRESTVIEW — Two of the season's joys are the Okaloosa Chamber Singers' and Schola Cantorum's Christmas concerts.

The latter will be sung locally Dec. 16.

The 11-voice community choral group, which is based at Northwest Florida State College, regularly delights audiences with its professionalism and a repertoire of classic and popular songs.

"A Babe is Born," a 14-number program under Dr. John Leatherwood's direction, will include selections ranging from classical pieces by composers including Gustav Holst and Felix Mendelssohn and Andy Beck's "(A Christmas Sha-na-na)."

Taking a breather from shopping, decorating, baking and wrapping to pause and reflect on Christmas' true meaning can be reinvigorating.

It helps put into perspective the busy bother we think is important, but which usually overshadows the part of the Advent season that actually is important.
