LIMA — The Lima Area Youth Orchestra will be providing sounds of the season during its annual Christmas concert Sunday.
“There will be a lot of favorites like Leroy Anderson’s ‘Sleigh Ride.’ There will be Christmas at the movies featuring music from ‘Frozen.’ We will be playing ‘Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer,’ ‘Little Drummer Boy,’ ‘Around the World at Christmastime’ and a few other ones,” said Travis Jurgens, conductor.
The holiday concert changes music each year.
“It’s a little different from last year. We’re only keeping a couple of the selections we did last year. The rest are ones we haven’t done, at least for a while,” said Jurgens.
There are approximately 60 young people in the orchestra this year ranging from grades seven through 12.
“The kids are excited. They seem to love Christmas music, and I think they’ll have a good time,” said Jurgens.
