The Pacifica Chamber Orchestra will perform its Christmas concert on Dec. 9 in Everett.

Fred Chu, artistic director, will lead members of Pacifica in the annual Christmas concert at 3 p.m. on Sunday, Dec. 9 at First Presbyterian Church in Everett.

The church is at 2936 Rockefeller Ave. in downtown Everett.

The festive program includes music by Vaughn-Williams, Mozart, Haydn, Ostijn and Telemann. Harp, horns, and violin are featured in this annual concert.

Soloists Michelle Rockwood and Tonya Harris will play French horn in Telemann’s “Concerto for Two Horns” and Amy Gudorf will play violin in Hzydn’s “Violin Concerto in G.”

There will be a carol sing-along and, following the concert, a reception for the audience and Pacifica members to visit and sample holiday cookies.

“It's the perfect way to start the holiday season, after the concert, shop and dine in the heart of downtown Everett,” said violinist Jo Hull.

Tickets are $15 or $10 student/senior (65+) and can be purchased at the door or in advance through Brown Paper Tickets atwww.brownpapertickets.com/event/227228.

The Mukilteo-based Pacifica Chamber Orchestra was founded in 2010 to provide a venue for both musicians and audiences to enjoy chamber works and lighter classical compositions.

“Pacifica Chamber Orchestra is a non-profit organization of professional musicians who love to perform exciting chamber music for audiences,” Hull said. “Join us!”
