Ashton choir prepares for Christmas cantata

Zion Lutheran Church in Ashton will host another cantata later this month.

This year’s cantata will be presented at 7 p.m. Dec. 21 and again at 7 p.m. Dec. 23 at 7 p.m. at the church.

“Every year we try to come up with something new,” choir director Jeanette Eidinger said in an email. “This year we’re using the cantata “Mary Did You Know” as a base, and have added four more individual pieces that are a little more challenging for us.”

The email said the music ranges from traditional Christmas hymns such as “Come Thou Long Expected Jesus” to a lively rendition of “African Angel Choir.”

Members of the choir come from a variety of local Christian churches, and many have participated for decades as the group has evolved.

The event is free and refreshments will be served following the program.
