The Hudson High School choral department presents "As the Dark Awaits the Dawn" at 5 and 7 p.m. Sunday and Monday, Dec. 10-11, at St. Patrick Church, 1500 Vine St., Hudson.

This concert features over 370 high school voices, a 90-voice children's choir, handbell choir and the River City Symphony Orchestra. This year's music will center around the main theme "Light and Darkness." Musical selections include: "The First Nowell," arranged by Mack Wilberg, "Gloria" by Randall Allan Bass, "Carol of the Bells" by Barlow Bradford and a rousing arrangement of "Arise Your Light Has Come" by David Danner.

Andrew Haase, HHS director of choral activities and artistic director for the Home for the Holidays Concert presents this 11th annual concert.
