On Tuesday, December 16th, the WCHS Chamber Orchestra (that’s the advanced one) will be performing at First Christian Church at 7 pm. Donations will be taken at the door to benefit the Versailles Salvation Army Angel Tree. Please come out and support our orchestra. We will be performing the Corelli Christmas Concerto (original, not an arrangement-also not for the faint of heart) as well as other holiday classics. We hope to see you there!
