NORWALK—The Towne and Country players present its 45th annual Christmas music event at 7:30 p.m. Dec. 9 at Norwalk St. Mary.

The program, “Ye Olde Yuletide Concert,” includes an appearance by the Ashland University Chamber Singers. The program includes fully-costumed singers and props.

“In the year that St. Mary is celebrating its 150th anniversary, it is appropriate that we celebrate our 45th anniversary in the acoustically perfect nave,” says Rand Laycock, a member of the concert committee.

Doors open at 7 p.m. with music provided by St. Mary organist Greg McDonald. The church’s new outdoor carillons will play traditional carols during the event as well.

Tickets for the concert are $7.50 each.

Prior to the concert is a feast of ‘byrde and boar’ and wassail, served at 6 p.m. in Reynold’s Hall. Reservations for the meal are required before 5 p.m. Dec. 5 and may be made by calling 419-668-1641. The dinner-concert ticket is $20 per person.

The dinner is catered by Victorian Lady Bed and Breakfast in Norwalk, and decorations are being organized by Mr. McDonald.

St. Mary is located at 38 W. League St., Norwalk.
