The Owatonna High School Carolers, symphony orchestra and concert choir ended the night with some "shameless fun," according to choir director Chris Harris.

The final number at Owatonna's holiday concert Tuesday night was a fun rendition of "Let it Snow! Let it Snow! Let is Snow!" which Harris introduced to the choir through clips of the Andy Williams Show circa 1965. The choir used a four-person percussion section for their performance of "Gaudete." Zach Barrett, Hannah Gebur, Scott Kingland and Harrison Kuhn played a variety of instruments after assistance from Pete Guenther during rehearsal.

The OHS Carolers opened the evening with a steady stream of familiar selections led by student directors Greta Jacobson and Anna Weisenburger.

The symphony orchestra played three pieces, closing with "Winter Wonderland" under the direction of Sandra Justice.

For those interested in supporting the Owatonna music program, the Music Boosters of Owatonna will hold their benefit concert on January 14.

KRFO radio will play back the concert on AM 1390 this week.
