The Penobscot Bay Singers will present “A Child’s Christmas in Wales,” a celebration of narration and song for the holiday season, as its holiday concert Saturday and Sunday, Dec. 9 and 10.

The performances will be Saturday at 7:30 p.m. at the First Congregational Church, 8 Church St. (on the Penobscot Marine Museum campus) in Searsport; and Sunday, Dec. 10, at 3 p.m. at Belfast’s United Methodist Church, 23 Mill Lane.

Poet Dylan Thomas wrote this anecdotal retelling of Christmas from a child’s perspective for the BBC radio service in the 1950s. The Penobscot Bay Singers are using narrative excerpts, read by Jim Rose, along with musical interludes of hymns and carols of the Christmas season.

The Singers are directed by Richard M. Dostie and accompanied by Lennea Johnson. Suggested donation is $15, with accompanied children admitted for free.

The Penobscot Bay Singers, originally the Robert Coller Coastal Chorale, has been entertaining audiences in and around Waldo County since 1973. The singers are an eclectic group, ranging from a pre-teen to singers in their 80s, with varying backgrounds. For more information about the nonprofit group, visit or the group’s Facebook page.
