The Arroyo Grande Rotary Club will be hosting its 8th Annual Christmas and Holiday Concert and Sing-Along on Sunday, Dec. 20. This special 4 p.m. matinee will be presented at Arroyo Grande’s Clark Center. Attendees will be able to enjoy great regional music and dance groups while also joining their family and friends in singing all their favorite holiday songs.

This December’s show is entitled “Twelve Days of Christmas!” and will present favorite Christmas and Holiday songs. This special show will include the Village Carolers of Studio Sing, Sing, Sing, the Arroyo Grande High School Band, the Celebration Chorus, dancers from Coastal Dance and Music Academy, Studio of Performing Arts, SLO Ballet Theater and the Apostle Greek Orthodox Church, the Grande Bell Ringers from the Arroyo Grande United Methodist Church, the In Time Trio and more. Arrangements are now being made for special appearances by Santa Claus, plus, free holiday goodies and drinks will be provided for everyone in the lobby at the end of the show.

Net proceeds from this event are donated annually to the music and arts programs of various South County schools. Proceeds from the 2014 Sing-Along were recently donated to the Arroyo Grande High School Band Department.

Tickets for the Christmas and Holiday Sing-Along are $12 for adults and $6 for children & students and are now available from the Clark Center Box Office at (805) 489-9444 or Special family discount pricing (in advance only at the Box Office) allows three to six family members to attend for $30. It is suggested that all tickets be purchased well in advance in anticipation of a sell out.

Local support and sponsors are now being sought for this event. The organizing committee plans to secure enough sponsors to mitigate the show expenses thereby allowing 100-percent of the ticket revenue to be donated to local school music programs. A limited number of sponsorships are now available at levels from $100 to $1,000. Contact Event Chair Mary Sansone at or (805) 458-3827 to secure a sponsorship.
