The Othello Choral Society helped kick off the Christmas season this weekend, as they presented their annual Christmas Cantata.
The show features choirs of both adults and children and follows the story of the first Christmas.
This year's cantata was called "Hope of the Broken World," created, arranged and orchestrated by Dave Clarke and David T. Clydesdale.
The cantata was just written this year, director Bob Reichert said.
Reichert has been directing for several years and he always chooses a new production, he said.
This year, he listened to about 10 different cantatas before settling on "Hope of the Broken World."
One thing he liked about the show was that it offered plenty of challenges, he said. The choral society had to work hard on the show and there were lots of solos and duets to showcase individual voices.
This was the first year the cantata was performed at McFarland Middle School. It was a pretty big adjustment to the new space, Reichert said.
Overall, things went very well, Reichert said.
"It was a great performance," he said.
His wife Donna directed the children's choir and did a phenomenal job, he said.
The cantata will hold a final performance 3 p.m. Dec. 9 at Our Lady of Fatima Catholic Church, 200 N. Gale Road, Moses Lake.
DVDs and CDs of the performance are also available. Contact Donna Reichert at 488-5597 for more information.
