Christmas Festival, symphony fundraiser, to be held this weekend
By Greg DeLuca
Tradition! Town pride! Christmas fun!
The Christmas Dinner and Concert has been a town event for many years. Paired with the Festival, this fundraiser is vital to the survival of the Kanab’s own orchestra. It’s this Friday, December 6 and Saturday, December 7.
This year, to give everyone a chance, the symphony will have two fundraising dinners at 6 p.m. on both Friday and Saturday evenings in the Kanab Middle School, followed by two Christmas concerts at 7:15 p.m. in the Kanab High School Auditorium. By popular demand, the better acoustics in the auditorium made the decision to move to Kanab High an easy one.
The Saturday Christmas Festival is always fun. The kids will be dancing, singing and playing wonderful favorites. There will be many door prizes and Santa will be there. There will be fun food and many vendor booths filled with numerous homemade goodies, and potential gifts for your families and friends. Saturday, the Festival will run from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., and admission is only $2.
This year’s theme is “Old Time Radio Christmas.” Come down and support your Symphony of the Canyons, have a prime rib dinner on Friday, or a chicken fried chicken dinner on Saturday with Christmas music in the background played by Encore. Have a great time on the boisterous Saturday Christmas Festival. And last, but certainly not least, listen to the Symphony of the Canyons play many of your holiday favorites, plus a few surprises thrown in.
Hey, Kanab, the Symphony of the Canyons is amazing. Most community orchestras of this quality are in towns at least the size of St. George, and often with the partnership of a college. All of Kane County has only about 5,000 people, no college is based here, and yet we have our own symphony orchestra. Who funds it? You do!
Tickets and more details are available at Zion Pharmacy. Information: 644-8276.
Remember, it’s this weekend! Don’t miss it.
