Last day to order Pumpkin and a Song

Join the Casper Children’s Chorale as it continues the 39-year tradition of caroling to welcome the autumn season. Hundreds of pumpkins will be delivered to Casper residents at the end of October, accompanied by small groups of chorale members singing jubilant “Songs of Harvest.” The entire Chorale will also perform at assisted living facilities on Saturday, Oct. 28.

The cost for each pumpkin and caroling delivery is $10, and orders are due October 10 for delivery beginning Oct. 20. Proceeds help chorale members finance their April performance tour.

The award-winning Casper Children’s Chorale has been singing since 1979 under the direction of Marcia Patton. They have appeared by invitation at state, regional and national music conventions and have earned consistent Gold Awards at Heritage Festivals in the United States and Canada. Please consider supporting this outstanding group of 80 fourth through eighth graders who represent Casper and Wyoming.
