Photo submitted - The Elk County Concert Choir is shown performing during their spring 2011 dinner theater held at The Royal Inn in Ridgway. The concert choir has been putting on dinner theaters for five years.

The Elk County Concert Choir has been practicing for weeks for the holiday season’s upcoming performances. This year’s showings are entitled the "Tapestry of Light: a Celtic Christmas Celebration." The shows are scheduled for Wednesday, Nov. 30 at 7:30 p.m. at St. Leo Magnus Catholic Church in Ridgway and Dec. 3 at 7:30 p.m. at the Sacred Heart Catholic Church in St. Marys. Admission is free and refreshments will be provided.
The group of singers is comprised of 45 volunteers from Elk County. They practice every Monday for two hours at the First Presbyterian Church in Ridgway. Being a part of the concert choir takes immense dedication and devotion, according to members.
“The volunteers come back because they love to sing and they enjoy the fellowship,” said Principal Director Gloria Almquist-Shull.
The concert series is a nonprofit event, but any donations given are directed to furthering the future of music, she said.
