Believe it or not it's officially the last month of the year and that means the winter–holiday season is upon us.

To help get people in spirit, a concert was presented by a few area groups this afternoon at a Mankato church.

The sound of the holiday music tells you December is here.

And even though it's winter performers this afternoon were rehearsing for today since the middle of summer.


Joel Botten Holiday Harmony co–chair says, "We look forward to singing for the public always, we sing all summer, both groups, this is a special time of year so we're glad to share holiday music both sacred and secular." "It's always fun to see things come together."

Holiday Harmony attendees told us they were very excited to be there and get into the holiday spirit.


Lynn Austin a fan of the musical groups says, "The music being sang in a church it just really brings the whole season to a start, it's just going to be a great great concert."


Rebecca Gregor, Holiday Harmony attendant says, "It does get you in the holiday spirit and listening to some holiday songs and seeing all the beautiful scenery around here to."

The Minnesota Valley Sweet Adelaides and Mankato Area Riverblenders performed twice today once in Mankato at 3PM and then later in St. Peter at 7PM.
