Nothing quite says "holiday celebration" like a community-wide event to benefit others in our city. This Sunday, Rochester Oratorio Society will host the fourth annual "A City Sings for the Season" at the Stardust Ballroom. This free concert is notable for the sheer number of ensembles and artists set to perform: the Rochester Oratorio Society's large chorus — as well as its touring chamber ensemble Resonanz — will be joined by Borinquen Dance Theatre, Hochstein Youth Singers, Mt. Vernon Missionary Baptist Male Chorus, and ROCMusic Collaborative. In lieu of a ticket charge, donations in the form of cash, food, and personal care items will be accepted at the door to support Action for a Better Community.
"A City Sings for the Season" will take place Sunday, December 3, at Edgerton Recreation Center's Stardust Ballroom, 41 Backus Street. 3 p.m. Free of charge; donations at the door go to Action for a Better Community. 473-2234; rossings.org.
