The Southern Arizona Women's Chorus annual holiday offering, "A Retro Christmas," is scheduled for two performances this month.

What began as a project for a University of Arizona graduate student has become a group of 60 to 80 singers.

Under the direction of Terrie Ashbaugh, the group will perform Dec. 14 at Catalina Foothills High School and Dec. 16 at Ascension Lutheran Church. Tickets for both concerts can be purchased on the SAWC website. Advance purchase price for each performance is $18.

"This is going to be a really fun repertoire of songs," Ashbaugh says. "We wanted to do one really fun last concert before we start to rehearse for our more serious spring concert where we will be performing some pretty difficult songs."
