The Rainier Youth Choir will perform at their annual holiday choral concert, “The Heavens are Singing,” at 3 p.m. Dec. 15 at the First Evangelical Presbyterian Church, 19800 108th Ave. S.E., Kent.

To share in the spirit of giving, RYC is holding a food drive for the Kent Food Bank in conjunction with the concert. Attendees get a drawing ticket for each non-perishable item they donate. The more people bring for the food bank, the better their chances to win prize baskets.

Bring the whole family to enjoy the concert and a “cookie mingle” that follows.  Concert tickets are $12 for adults and $10 for seniors/students if purchased in advance.

They are available online at www.RainierYouthChoirs.org. Tickets are $15 and $12 at the door and are available starting at 2:15 p.m.  Doors open at 2:30 p.m. with festival seating and season ticket holders have preferred seating.
