Free tickets are available now for the 2017 Central Montana Christmas Cantata at Keystone Christian Supply, Lewistown News-Argus, Don’s Store and First Presbyterian Church. Although the tickets are free, seating is limited.

Vocalists and musicians from a dozen local churches practiced for two months to put together and polish the Christmas Cantata. They are under the direction of Chris Hildebrant and Rachael Schwaller.

The 18th annual ecumenical Cantata – “Worship Christ the Newborn King” – will be held Sunday, Dec. 3 (two shows, 2 and 7:30 p.m.) and Monday, Dec. 4 (7:30 p.m.), and hosted by First Presbyterian Church, 215 Fifth Ave. South, Lewistown.

This year’s Cantata will feature many favorites from years past, all woven together with narration to tell the Christmas story. Contemporary songs and classics like the “Hallelujah Chorus,” special musician-only pieces, men’s and women’s vocal groups and full choir, the church’s magnificent organ – all will be showcased at this year’s Cantata.

There will be a wide range of music to please those who attend and to set an amazing tone for the holiday season. Those involved in the Cantata share one goal: to help bring the spirit and meaning of the Christmas season alive for those who watch the performance.

Cantata organizers stress that seating is limited. Anyone who takes a ticket but cannot attend is urged to return it as quickly as possible to one of the outlets as demand each year has been more than seats available.
