Season's Concerts in the Courthouse Begin

The 15th annual Christmas Concerts in the Douglas County Courthouse will being on Thursday, Dec. 5.

For the 15th consecutive year, the Douglas County Courthouse Atrium will be filled with the wonderful sounds of children singing during the holidays!
Weekdays between Thursday, Dec. 5 and Friday, Dec. 20, groups from schools in Douglas County will perform beginning at 12:15 p.m. on the Grand Staircase of the Courthouse Atrium.

Their music will resound through the 165-foot high Atrium, filling the Courthouse with the sounds of the season; 23 groups will perform this year.
The concerts are a holiday tradition. They give schools an unique public venue to show off the musical talents of their students which help them develop their musical and performance abilities, as well as their self-confidence.

The concerts will be broadcast live on dctv23, and replayed on weekends (12:15 p.m. concerts replayed on Saturdays beginning at 11 a.m., and 12:45 p.m. concerts replayed on Sundays beginning at 11 a.m., all concerts replayed in order of appearance). Every Douglas County public school receives an invitation to perform and a performance time is scheduled for every chorus that wishes to perform. The concerts will also be webcasted live on www.CelebrateDouglasCounty.com.

Seating is available in the Atrium, and the concerts are open to the Public with free admission.

Douglas County Chairman Tom Worthan stated that “we are pleased and proud to be able to present the talents of Douglas County youth for all of our citizens to see and enjoy. It is wonderful to hear children’s voices lifted in song, and their spirits lifted in celebration. The Christmas Concerts in the Courthouse are enjoyed by thousands of our citizens in person and on dctv23 each year, and are a wonderful way to celebrate the most joyous of seasons.”
