GROTON -- "It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas?!?"

Well, thankfully not quite yet! But it is beginning to look a lot like rehearsal time once more for the annual Groton Community Christmas Concerts. We are looking for new choir members, both adult and children, from Groton and surrounding towns.

Anyone is welcome, and there are no auditions. Founded in 1974, and directed every year since by Edie Tompkins, this year marks the 44th performance of these festive community concerts.

The choirs rehearse in Groton every Sunday night beginning Sept. 23.

Senior Choir rehearsal: Sundays from 7-9 p.m., for adults of all ages, including high school students.

Treble Choir rehearsal: Sundays from 4:30-6:15 p.m.,for boys and girls in grades 3-8.

Rehearsals continue every Sunday from Sept. 23 through Dec. 2.

There will be three performances at the Union Congregational Church, 218 Main St., Groton:

* Sunday, Dec. 9, 2 p.m.

* Sunday, Dec. 9 at 7:30 p.m.

* Monday, Dec. 10 at 7:30 p.m.
