Pacifica promises fun and festive Christmas show

Artistic director Fred Chu says the Pacifica Chamber Orchestra's upcoming concert is a season favorite.
"This is going to be fun and exciting," Chu said.
The orchestra's annual Christmas concert is to be held at 3 p.m. Sunday at First Presbyterian Church, 2936 Rockefeller Ave., Everett. Tickets are $15 general, $10 students and seniors, and can be purchased at the door or in advance at www.brownpapertickets.com/event/227228.
The program is fun and festive, and includes music by Vaughn-Williams, Mozart, Haydn, Ostijn and Telemann.
Selections include a "Concert Piece for Strings" by Ostijn; "Concerto for Two Horns" by Telemann; "Five Variants of Dives and Lazarus" by Vaughn-Williams; "Violin Concerto in G" by Haydn; and "Schlichtenfahrt" by Mozart.
Favorite Christmas instruments including a harp, horns and violins will be featured.
To add to the festive atmosphere, the concert includes a carol sing along. Following the performance, the audience can meet the Pacifica members over holiday cookies and beverages.
"It's the perfect way to start the holiday season," Chu said.
The Pacifica Chamber Orchestra is a nonprofit organization of professional musicians who are passionate about sharing and performing chamber music.
The orchestra held a recent outreach concert at Olivia Park Elementary School for 600 students, part of its commitment to bringing classical music to youngsters.
"We take our music to those who need it most," Chu said.
