Nevada Union continues tradition of holiday concerts

Winter concerts take place

For more than 40 years Nevada Union High School has carrried on the tradition of holiday concerts, first with Don Baggett as director and now his son Rod Baggett. That tradition continues Wednesday and Dec. 14, as eight choral groups, making up a total of 300 singers again delight audiences made up of other students, friends, family members, to those who simply love the energy and the good singing of the school’s choral department.

A full tenth of the high school is in choir and each year a number of graduates go on to pursue more schooling in music. Recently, six choir members were chosen for the 2006 California Regional Honor Choir. Music is defintely in the air at Nevada Union.

Concerts at the school are always fun to watch, especially the spirited, theatrical pieces; and are uniformly satisfying to listen to. Proceeds from tickets sales go to scholarships for graduating choir students, with the Nevada Union Choir Boosters awarding more money in scholarships annually than any other high school organization.

The school’s Don Baggett Theatre is the venue-11761 Ridge Road, Grass Valley. Both evenings (Dec. 12 and 14) start at 7p.m. Tickets for $10/adult and $8/children, students and seniors are being presold at the theater’s ticket booth- Dec. 9 (10 a.m.-noon,) Dec. 11 (5 p.m.-6:30 p.m.,) and Dec. 13 (5p.m.-6:30p.m.). Call 272-5910 or 273-4431, ext. 305.
