Sometimes an idea takes on a life of its own.

That’s what happened with the San Juan Singers’ winter concert, “The Brightest and Best of Christmas.” This concert will be filled with joyous singing and instruments playing.

The shows are from 7:30-9 p.m., Saturday, Dec. 8 and 2-3:30 p.m., Sunday, Dec. 9. Tickets are $20 for adults, $10 for student reserved and $5 for student rush at the door only.

John Rutter’s “Magnificat” sometimes dances, sometimes floats and always delivers a melody that goes straight to the heart. The show continues with “Believe,” from the film “The Polar Express,”; Celtic-inspired settings of “Silent Night” and “Now is Born the Divine Christ Child,”; and a lush new setting of “See, Amid the Winter Snow.”

The lighter side of the program includes “There is A Santa Claus,” from the movie and Broadway show “Elf:; “Eatnemen Vuelie” from the animated film “Frozen”; and Christmas-inspired spirituals and the traditional shape-note tune “Brightest and Best,” accompanied by fiddle and bass.

Be sure to attend. This show will have you dancing through this holiday season.
