SATB: A Different Kind of Choir will present their winter concert, “Singing About Times Bygone,” as a benefit for the Athens County Historical Society and ARTS/West on Saturday, Dec. 12 at 7 p.m.

The audience will be able to peruse the ARTS/West Holiday Art Auction in the green room prior to and after the concert. This is the last day of bidding; winners will be notified on Monday, Dec. 14.

SATB presents two concerts per year, each a benefit for a local non-profit, with music based around that non-profit. This weekend’s concert features musical selections based on history of Athens County, including “Athens County Song” by songwriter JD Jewell; “Murillo’s Lesson,” a shape-note piece; “Go Tell It on the Mountain,” a Christmas classic with a gospel twist; and even a holiday sing-a-long which includes Handel’s “Hallelujah Chorus” from Messiah. This is SATB’s 10th concert.

According to a press release, the choir’s mission is to create powerful and inspiring music in partnership with social justice organizations to bring support and awareness to their causes, and celebrate diversity and humanity.

The concert is made possible with support from the Athens Community Music Festival and the Kleinpenny Foundation. Doors will open at 6:30 p.m. and there is a $10/individual or $15/family suggested donation.
