The University of Alaska Fairbanks University Chorus, under the direction of Jaunelle Celaire, will present its Christmas concert on Saturday, Dec. 8, at 8 p.m. in the Charles W. Davis Concert Hall.

The University Chorus, formed more than 60 years ago, is one of the oldest musical organizations in Alaska and is open to both students and Fairbanks-area residents. The chorus' major concerts occur annually during the first or second weekend in December and first weekend in May. The University Chorus has performed in concerts with the Fairbanks Symphony including performances of "Carmina Burana," Beethoven's "Symphony No. 9," Handel's "Messiah" and Haydn's "Creation" and have sung with the Fairbanks Community Band and in traditional Christmas concerts with the U.S. Air Force Band of the Pacific.

Tickets are available in the UAF music department and at the door. Admission is $10 for adults and $5 for students, military and senior citizens. Children under 12 are admitted free.
