The holiday season hasn’t quite yet arrived, but an agreement between the Walled Lake Consolidated School District and the Huron Valley Council for the Arts will help bring about a holiday extravaganza in December.
The arts council on Dec. 7 will be hosting a holiday concert at Walled Lake Northern High School featuring professional musicians and the district’s award-winning youth choirs. To help facilitate the event, the Walled Lake Schools Board of Education on Thursday, Oct. 11 agreed to waive the auditorium fees for the event.
“Home for the Holidays: A Holiday Extravaganza” will be held at 7:30 p.m. on Dec. 7 at Walled Lake Northern. The show is presented by the Huron Valley Council for the Arts and will feature the Michigan Philharmonic with music director Nan Washburn. The show will include special appearances by the district’s award-winning youth choirs.
Tickets for the holiday concert start at $15 and can be purchased online at huronvalleyarts.org or in person at the arts council’s offices at 205 W. Livingston Road in Highland Township.

The show will feature singing and dancing for all ages, with entertainment by the choirs and a special guest performance from the Walnut Creek Middle School choir.
Next week’s event will include a five-course meal that will be served as part of the evening’s activities.
