The Great Rivers Choral Society will present two concerts this weekend. Both will be held at Sts. Peter and Paul Catholic Church in Alton. Tonight’s (Saturday) performance is at 7:30, while Sunday is a matinee at 3pm.

Music Director Raynard Brown tells The Big Z the concerts are titled “A Soliloquy of Wintertide: Escapade.”

The second part of the concert will feature more contemporary Christmas music. Both concerts are free to attend, but a goodwill offering will be taken. There will be a sing-along for the audience and a cookie reception following the Sunday concert.
