Taking the stage on Dec. 13 at the Memorial Center, the Treasure Tones not only offer a free concert as its gift to the community but also urges those who plan to attend to help out the local food bank.

The Treasure Tones’ “Christmas Dreams” is scheduled to begin at 7 p.m. on that Sunday evening with a program that features some of the area’s top talent. The concert is free to all but concertgoers are encouraged to bring a cash donation to go toward the support of the Libby Food Pantry.

For more than a decade, the Treasure Tones have donated net proceeds from the holiday concert to help feed needy local families. In fact, the group’s Christmas performance was the very first concert held in the renovated Memorial Gymnasium/Performing Arts Center in December 2001.

This year’s performance will feature the Libby Middle School Select Choir and the Libby High School Stage Choir – directed by Lorraine Braun – and “Men of Troy” with Julie Meyer – directed by Tony Smith.

A mixed choir from the Catholic church directed by Mick Shea will add a new sparkle to the program.

The Treasure Tones, a 20-voice choral ensemble directed by Phyll Mackey, will perform an array of carols – old and new, sacred and secular – all geared toward listening enjoyment.

The Junior Treasure Tones will also make an appearance with Kristel Donahue, Kristen Lindgren, Madison Monogold, Declan Faulkner, Galen Graziano and Raven Mathiason.

Ron Goldman will handle emcee duties.

The public is encouraged to attend to an evening of musical pleasure while helping support a worthy cause.
