Red Mountain Choir Plans Performance

Red Mountain Choir Plans Performance

The Red Mountain Choir is planning a performance for March 23 and 24 at the College of Southern Nevada, Boulder City campus.

The theme of the performance is mankind’s relationship with the sea. The show starts at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $12 for adults and $5 for children and students. A family pass is $3. People can purchase tickets at the Boulder City Chamber of Commerce.

The choir is composed of 100 people from all around southern Nevada. People do not have to audition to be part of the group. The idea of the Red Mountain Music Company and the choir is to give people interested in music and singing a chance to perfect their skills and be part of a choir experience. The group also runs a youth choir and a musical theater group in the summer.
