Men’s chorus toasts holidays

The Heart of America Men’s Chorus will present Christmas songs – traditional, light-hearted, and in ways you may not have heard before – at their annual concert this weekend at Newman University. “Cheers! A Toast to the Holidays” will be performed two times: 7 p.m. Saturday and 4:30 p.m. Sunday in De Mattias Hall, 3100 W. McCormick. A singalong will take place after the concert in the hall’s atrium. Tickets are $15, or $5 for students, at the door or by calling 316-708-4837. Part of the proceeds will benefit Operation Holiday, and attendees also can bring coats, gloves, hats and scarves for the needy.
