Alex Zuniga of Tukwila will perform with The Northwest Boychoir as it celebrates its 40th anniversary with the presentation of its 36th season of “A Festival of Lessons & Carols,” featuring eight regional performances in December.

These holiday concerts showcase the 90-member combined chorus of the Northwest Boychoir and Vocalpoint! Seattle. The final concert of the Northwest Boychoir’s season will be presented by the Seattle Symphony, with members of the Northwest Sinfonia at Benaroya Hall onDecember 23.

Alex, 11, is in his second year performing “A Festival of Lessons & Carols. As a boy at Tukwila Elementary, his music teacher recommended that he audition and he quickly rose through the training choirs before being promoted to the Performing Choir

Patterned after the Christmas Eve observance at King’s College in Cambridge, England, “A Festival of Lessons & Carols” has become a holiday tradition for thousands of families in the Puget Sound region. This classical performance consists of nine holiday readings, each followed by a traditional carol performed by the choir, and another carol sung by the choir and audience.
