Chorale Des Amis is selling poinsettias this Christmas season.

The children’s choir is raising money to help students travel to Memphis and for its scholarship program.

So far, the students have sold 500 poinsettias but more are still available.

“It gives them an opportunity to have more rehearsal times and continue to make music together. It means a lot to give it to the students who may not have music in the schools that they’re at currently. It gives them a sense of family and a sense of belonging, and it’s fun,” said choir manager Gabrielle Hildestad.

Poinsettia can be purchased by calling 337-935-2490. More about Chorale can be found here

The choir will perform on Friday, November 30, 2018, at the Oil Center’s Festival of Lights starting at 7:00 pm
