Performances are 7 pm Friday, December 20; 2 pm and 4 pm Sunday, December 22; and 7 pm Monday, December 23. All performances take place at First Christian Church in Watseka.
There are no tickets required to attend but seats must be reserved in advance in order to ensure seating is available. To reserve seats, call the ticket number at 815-317-6165 and leave the following information: Your name, the number of seats you need, the time and date of the performance you wish to attend, and a contact number. You should note whether or not your contact number can receive text verification of your reservation or if you need a return call.
In addition to the youth choir, “Joyful Noyz,” directed by Jessica Fehland, this year’s cantata will feature soloists: Jessica Fehland, Kena Clark, Jayne Henrichs, Duane Wolfe, Earl Kroll, Faith Aaron, Megan Schippert, Adam Drake and Samantha Gooding. Participants of the cantata represent many area churches and communities.
Donations are always accepted at the door and these help support a chosen organization. This year’s recipient will be Iroquois Memorial Hospital Hospice, a highly regarded program dedicated to surround patients and families with comfort and support.
