CRESTVIEW — Schola Cantorum, the Northwest Florida State College-based community chorus, will present its annual Christmas concert.

The first performance is 7 p.m., Sunday, Dec. 10, at the First Presbyterian Church of Crestview.

Under the direction of Dr. John Leatherwood, the 15-voice chorus, accompanied by Kevin Schular, will perform a variety of classic, contemporary, secular and popular Christmas and seasonal music during this free concert.

From the classic "Jubilate Deo" to favorites including "O Holy Night," "Away in a Manger" and "What Child is This?" to contemporary selections including Mark Lowry's "Mary Did You Know?," Schola Cantorum — Latin for "college of singing" — demonstrates its breadth and talent in its annual Christmas treat to the community.

If you miss the Crestview concert, Schola Cantorum will also perform 6:15 p.m. Dec. 6 at St. Simon's on the Sound, Fort Walton Beach; and 7:30 p.m. Dec. 14 at Trinity United Methodist Church in Fort Walton Beach.

Admission is free, but offerings to cover expenses and support music education at NWFSC will be accepted at each performance.
