Choirs from St. Scholastica will ring in the season with favorite Christmas songs during two concerts, Dec. 9 and 10, at St. Michael's Catholic Church in Duluth.
The St. Scholastica Concert Choir, Bella Voce, Women's Choir and - new this year - the CSS Men's Chorus will unite for this annual celebration of the Christmas season through song. Concerts will be at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 9 and Saturday, Dec. 10 at St. Michael's at 4901 E. Superior St.
