The first rehearsal for the 2018 Central Montana Christmas Cantata will be held Wednesday, Sept. 26.
And the Cantata performances will be on Saturday, Dec. 1 (one evening performance) and Sunday, Dec. 2 (two performances). The Saturday performance is new this year and will replace the Monday evening performance of years past.
Cantata organizers wanted to get dates out early so those interested in singing in the 19th annual Cantata or attending can get dates on their calendars.
Rachael Schwaller and Chris Hildebrant will again direct the Cantata, and music has already been selected. Each year, the 66-voice Cantata choir has performed to full-house audiences and has included members of more than a dozen area churches.
