The performance, which is free to the public, is scheduled for Monday, Dec. 9, and Laney, who conducts the musical tradition, is planning auditions.

The open auditions to the public for new singers will be held Monday, Aug. 26, 5-7 p.m. in Room 106 of the Alkek Fine Arts Center on the college’s Weatherford campus. Singers must be able to sight read.

Rehearsals are Monday evenings starting Sept. 9, 7:30-9 p.m.
