Red Cedar Choir holiday concert set for December 10

By UW-Barron County

The Red Cedar Choir’s holiday concert, Oh Holy Night, will feature the 80+ member choir directed by Beth Joosten, with guest performances by Barron County Brass.

The choir will give two performances on Sunday, Dec. 10, at 2 and 4 p.m. at St. Joseph’s Catholic Church, Rice Lake. The concert will feature a Christmas celebration of traditional favorites and new music. The ensemble is accompanied by pianist Barb Lancaster of Chetek.

The Red Cedar Choir is a joint effort between the University of Wisconsin-Barron County and the surrounding communities. It is comprised of campus students and community members who rehearse weekly during the school year. Joosten is the assistant director of Choral Studies at UW-Eau Claire and has been directing the group since 2012.
