It's time to tune up the band in Palmerton.

That would be the "Holiday Homecoming Chorus," which plans to provide a Christmas concert and caroling for the Christmas in the Park Festival to be held Saturday, Dec. 7, in the borough park.

The group's first rehearsal will take place at 6:30 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 10, at First United Church of Christ, 457 Delaware Ave.

Richard Nothstein, church member, said there will be four rehearsals held in preparation for the festival.

Rehearsals usually last about one-and-a-half hours, Nothstein said.

The chorus has presented Christmas and patriotic musical concerts for the past seven years, and has included members from eight different counties and three states.

It's most recent performance was a Christmas Concert held last year at the First UCC.
