Mass Choir Concert taking place at Alliance Church.

One of the most remarkable events of the Christmas season is taking place at a new venue, 32 years after it began

One of the most remarkable events of the Christmas season is taking place at a new venue, 32 years after it began.

The 32nd Mass Christmas Choir of Cranbrook elementary school students will take place Wednesday, Dec. 5, at the Alliance Church in Cranbrook. The choir is comprised of 350 elementary students from nine Cranbrook schools, including Kootenay Christian Academy and St. Mary’s.

Michelle Mungiello, with Kootenay Christian Academy, is a representative of the Mass Choir Teachers. “We’ve had such an overwhelming response that because of fire regulations we just outgrew our previous venue (at the College of the Rockies gymnasium),” Mungiello said.

“So we put out feelers, and the Alliance Church jumped at the chance (to host us).”

Mungiello said the Alliance Church has twice the seating capacity of the COTR gym.

The concert begins at 7:30 p.m. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. Mungiello said seating is first-come, first-served.

The concert also serves as a fundraiser for the Salvation Army. Concert-goers are invited to drop off donations of food or money at the door.
