Sierra Gold Chorus, the Auburn Chapter of Sweet Adelines International, presents “Holiday Hysteria” at its 18th annual Christmas Show on Saturday, Dec. 14 at 2 p.m. at Combie Bible Church, 22924 West Hacienda Drive in Grass Valley, near Lake of the Pines.

Local women, Mary-Lou Munson of Folsom; Julie Schuller of Placerville and South Lake Tahoe; Lynette Green of Folsom; Sue Faulkner of Pollock Pines; Peg Campbell of Placerville; Mary Jane Ruggieri of  Shingle Springs; Joanie Williams of El Dorado; Donna Buckalew of Pilot Hill; Mavis Proud of Camino; and Joan Eckert of Folsom, are just a few of the Sierra Gold Chorus members who are having fun preparing for the Christmas Show.

The Sierra Gold Chorus is looking forward to its first Christmas Show under the direction of new director Ron Black.

Hold on to your seats while the chorus, joined by 12 new members and the Christmas Chorus, sing traditional and modern Christmas songs. Several quartets and a double quartet will add to the musical delight.

The featured act is the 2013 Regional First Place Championship Quartet, FlipSide: Sandy Cope, tenor from Roseville; Kathy Pecsar, lead, from Santa Rosa; Margaret Leggett, baritone, and Merriann Cree, bass, who both live in Stockton, make up this foursome that formed in June of 2011.

While competing in the Pacific Shores Region 12 Competition last April, FlipSide was named first place quartet in the region and became eligible to compete with quartets from all over the world at the International Convention in Honolulu.

The quartet will be returning from Hawaii just in time for the show. Also featured is the Placer High School Chamber Choir under the direction of David Lawrenson

This popular family show has been a sellout in past years. The best buy is presale tickets: adults $15, youths 16 and under are $7. Tickets at the door will be $18 for adults and $7 for youth.

Tickets may be purchased from any member of the chorus or by calling Joan Frink at 530-367-3532, or online at sierragoldchorus.org.

Every September, Sierra Gold Chorus invites women of the community to join the Christmas Chorus in singing at the annual Christmas show. This year, there are 26 women in the Christmas Chorus. Women are welcome to attend rehearsals throughout the year on Monday evenings at 7 p.m at Burback Hall, DeWitt Center, 11577 E. Ave. in Auburn.

For more information about the chorus or show call Carolie at 530-478-0130, Bev at 916-663-2105, or Barbara 530-885-4202. To schedule a performance anytime of the year call Jacque at 530-888-6657.

The Sierra Gold Chorus was formed in 1993 by a group of women who loved to sing and wanted to perform in the community. The chorus affiliated with Sweet Adelines International in 1995 and sings a cappella in four-part harmony, barbershop style.
