The Tri-Cities' newest youth show choir, Forte, will crank up the volume this holiday season with its Christmas show.
Forte, under the direction of Marianne Larsen, is a 20-member group founded last year and is made up of teenagers, ages 14 to 18, from all over the Tri-Cities.
It was organized by a group of mothers who wanted to provide unique performing opportunities for their talented children.
The show, "Christmas at Our House," features music from the '40s and '50s. Showtime is 7 p.m. Nov. 30 and Dec. 1, with a 2 p.m. matinee Dec. 1 in the auditorium at Chiawana High School in Pasco. Admission is $10 for adults and $8 for students and seniors.
"This show will be a wonderful festive evening of song and dance," said Becky Kreutz, president of the choir's board. "The program is a throwback to the spirit of Norman Rockwell and has a touch and feel of the '40s and '50s, along with some very modern numbers."
Some of the songs to be performed include Let it Snow; the Merry Christmas song from Home Alone II; Hot Chocolate and Believe from Polar Express; Mister Santa and a few traditional holiday tunes.
"We have some new faces in the group for this show," Kreutz said.
For the matinee, there is a special $35 family rate for up to six people. For more information, go to www.yourtcyc.com.
