Singing holiday songs: Truckee Tahoe Community Choruse gave two performances

Emma Garrard/Sierra Sun

The Truckee Tahoe Community Chorus at Sierra College, now in its seventh season, presented two holiday concerts this weekend.

The featured choral composition was the Gloria, by noted contemporary English composer John Rutter. This work, conducted by Susan K. Horst, featured brass, organ and percussion. Other contemporary composers included on the program were Morton Lauridsen and Eric Whitacre, with an entertaining line-up of holiday pieces.

The audience was invited to join the chorus in singing traditional carols. The chorus was directed by co-conductors Susan K. Horst and Chris Nelson. The 60-member chorus is sponsored by Sierra College, Truckee. Concerts were co-sponsored by Squaw Valley Institute and the Resort at Squaw Creek.
