Northborough – The Northboro Area Community Chorus’ (NACC) annual Christmas Concert was fortunate to have members of St. Marys’ Parish Children’s Choir as part of its holiday program. Jan Cappella, the director of the children’s choir and an alto in the NACC, along with chorus soprano Kristin DeFosse, prepared the children.

In addition, children and grandchildren of chorus members were part of the Nativity. The Baby Jesus was portrayed by James Brosnaham, grandchild of chorus member Pat Ainsleigh. The Virgin Mary was played by Katherine DeFosse. As an infant, Katherine was Baby Jesus back in the 2005 Christmas concert.
