A decorated Christmas tree presides over the sold-out madrigal concert in Johnsville Dec. 3. There was a bit of seasonal excitement Dec. 3 in the old mining town of Johnsville. From Main Street at the end of town a candle-bedecked path led the quiet crowd through the evergreen woods to old St. John's Church, glowing in the faint glimmer of candlelight. Once inside, the ambiance of a turn-of-the-century historic wooden church set the mood for an evening of choral Christmas enchantment. Under the direction of John Probst, the Le Panache madrigal singers sang forth their Christmas magic to a sold-out audience enthralled by this delightful holiday performance. Some of the traditional selections includ- ed "Ave Maria," "Ding Dong Merrily On Our Way" and "O Come, O Come Em- manuel," with the favorite of the evening being Handel's "Hallelujah Chorus." All in attendance were very grateful to have experi- enced this musical evening provided by Plumas Coun- ty's own very talented group Le Panache as a fundraiser for the Johnsville Historical Society. Following the perfor- mance, the families of Johnsville provided Christ- mas punch and sweet treats for all. Festive decorations add to the candlelit ambiance in the turn-of-the-century church.
