NORTHBOROUGH – The Northborough Area Community Chorus’ upcoming 50th annual Christmas concert is heading to Algonquin Regional High School.

The performance will take place on Sunday, Dec. 12 at 3 p.m. 

The chorus’ Christmas concert will feature carols, such as “The Holly and the Ivy” and “O Tanenbaum,” and works like “This Christmas,” “Swingin’ St. Nick!” and Eric Whitacre’s “Glow.”

As part of the program, the Children’s Choir at St. Mary’s Parish of Shrewsbury will perform “Mary’s Little Boy Child” and “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer.”

Under school protocols, the audience will be required to wear masks. 

Tickets cost $5. For more information, call 571-331-0214 or 508-393-8943 or visit the group’s website at or Facebook at

The Community Chorus got its start in 1972 and resumed in-person rehearsals earlier this year after the disruption of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The group adapted at various points throughout the pandemic, notably running a virtual program entitled “Still Singing Together” over the summer.

“This past year and a half was a very unique experience,” Community Chorus board member and publicity chair Mary Sullivan told the Community Advocate earlier this year. “If something positive comes out of this, it’s the fact that we’re still together. Whereas, some other groups had just gone on hiatus.”
