KCHS presents Christmas stage classic
The Kenai Central High School Choir Winter Concert will be Sunday at 3 p.m.
The concert will feature "Amahl and the Night Visitors." This is a one-act 45-minute opera, with haunting and touching music by composer Gian Carlo Menotti. Since debuting in 1952, it has become a Christmas classic. The story is about the three kings following the star, seeking the Christ child. They stop for the night at the humble home of a poor mother and her son Amahl, a mischievous cripple.
The opera will take place for the first half of the concert. The second half will feature solos and duets as well as the choir.
A donation of $3 is suggested for admission.

The deadline for submissions is Feb. 23, and they should be mailed or dropped off at the Kenai Visitors and Cultural Center. You must have an official entry form attached to the piece and the author's name should not be on the writing sample to keep everything fair.
