The Young at Heart Chorus free Christmas concert


The Young at Heart Chorus will present a free concert of Christmas and holiday songs at 2 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 22, in the Good Samaritan auditorium, 3011 Buena Vida Circle. Songs will include “Deck the Halls,” “Jingle Bell Rock,” “It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas,” “Do You Hear What I Hear” and many more.

Young at Heart entertains residents of assisted living and nursing homes in the Las Cruces area. The group has been in continuous operation since 1972, with the name of the group, the director, piano accompanist and venues changing through the years. Currently there are about 25 members, who practice two or three times and sing at four facilities each month. Music changes monthly, selected from a large collection of old songs, generally favorites of the audience and the chorus. Programs are enhanced by varying the themes and by highlighting the talents of individual members with vocal solos or duets, group harmony and instrumental accompaniment.
