SEARSPORT/BELFAST — The Penobscot Bay Singers presents “A Child’s Christmas in Wales,” a celebration of narration and song for the holiday season, Saturday, Dec. 10, at 7 p.m. at Searsport First Congregational Church, 8 Church St., and Sunday, Dec. 11, at 3 p.m. at St. Francis of Assisi, 81 Court St., Belfast.

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

Penobscot Bay Singers originally performed the program in 2018. This will be the group’s first open concert since the pandemic. Although membership has declined somewhat since 2018, under the direction of Richard Dostie and joined by new accompanist joani mitchell, the singers will delight and warm audiences through the program of beautiful choral arrangements.

Suggested donation is $15. Accompanied children are free.

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. The common factor is love of choral music.
