Tonight in City Council chambers a local chorale will be spreading Christmas joy.

Tune in at 7 p.m. right on Torrance CitiCABLE (Spectrum 3, Frontier FiOS 31 or KNET 25.2 over the air) to hear the Torrance Civic Chorale sing some tunes for the holidays. You can also watch the performance online as part of the regularly scheduled Council meeting.

The group has brought exceptional music to the South Bay since 1961. It has more than 80 singers and the chorale is sponsored by the Cultural Services Division of the Community Services Department.

They also will swing in the holiday season with a live big band orchestra this weekend at the James Armstrong Theatre. The evening will feature holiday classics like “Deck the Halls, “Let it Snow,” and more. Tickets are $25 and can be purchased online.
