Every year the choirs go to the mall and sing their best holiday songs! But only the advanced choirs can go, Woman Chorus, Concert choir, and Chamber singers. It is a fun experience and fun to hang with friends, get a treat, and sing your heart out! Mall tour is going to be on Dec 12 . And second terms choir concert is on Dec. 15 at Salem hills high school . Everyone should go because there will be amazing songs and Christmas concerts are always the funnest!
