Participants will get two treats in one setting on three days during the Holiday Dessert Show at First United Methodist Church, Eighth and Ash. The event will be from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Dec. 14 and 15, and 2 to 3:30 p.m. Dec. 17

Lower level dining hall tickets are a $20 donation.

The Holiday Dessert Show will feature the Fort Hays Singers, conducted by Terry Crull, singing Christmas carols from various countries, with desserts served to guests between sets of music. The Singers will be in festive costumes and serve as waiters, delivering Austrian chocolates, German küchen, English scones and other items to match the carols.

Following the show, the entire scene will move upstairs to the sanctuary for a short (30 minute) concert by the Fort Hays Singers. Participants can skip the desserts and join the concert at 7:30 p.m. and 3 p.m. on respective days to enjoy the songs.

The Fort Hays Singers will use the Holiday Dessert Show as the main fundraiser for a June trip to Salzburg, Austria, where they will sing Mozart’s “Coronation Mass” in the Salzburg Cathedral where Mozart himself was baptized. All ticket donations, as well as other donations received at the mini-concert (and other events throughout the year) will go directly to the 20 members of the Fort Hays Singers to help students pay for the trip. 

Reservations can be made by calling (785) 628-5361 or (785) 628-4258.
