Plan now to attend a very special event this weekend: the lighting of the Zilker Holiday Tree. An annual tradition in Austin since 1965, the Barton Hills Choir has performed at the event each year since their inception in 2009.
The show is scheduled to start at 6 PM on Sunday, Dec. 2, but come early to get a seat up close to see the Barton Hills Choir perform holiday favorites, including:
Jingle Bell Rock
Parking is free, but bring funds for hot chocolate, kettle corn, and other goodies that will be available. It’s a wonderful way to get into the holiday spirit and is sure to be a night to remember.
The Barton Hills Choir invites you to their 2012 Sock Hop Show, Thursday, September 27, in the school cafeteria. 5th and 6th grade choir members will be performing your favorite songs from the 50′s, including hits like:
- Yakety Yak
- Big Girls Don’t Cry

- and more!
The show is free and open to the public. Doors open at 6:30 PM, and refreshments will be provided.
