The choir performs on a tree-shaped choral riser covered in live fir boughs that truly looks like a living Christmas tree. Strings of red, blue, green, and amber Christmas lights move in time with the music being performed creating a wonderful visual experience.

John Kluttz will direct the Singing Christmas Tree choir. This will be his second year at the helm, though he is an alumnus of the choir, having sung when he was in high school.

Those who wish to join the choir merely need to attend rehearsals to register. Singers ages 12 and older are welcome to join. It is asked that participants have very regular attendance at rehearsals.

There are no dues or fees for singers, nor do singers need to audition to become a part of the choir. Members come from Lebanon and Albany, as well as Sweet Home.
