St. Catherineâ€™s Christmas Concert is a traditional way that people in Valley City start the holiday season, according to Christopher Redfearn, Director of Choral Activities at Valley City State University.
The free concert will be held Thursday at 7:30 p.m. at St. Catherineâ€™s Church in Valley City.
â€śAs soon as you hit December, everybodyâ€™s schedule just becomes very crazy,â€ť Redfearn said. â€śWe like putting this concert early in the season so that people can get into the holiday spirit.â€ť

Korf said the demand for services has increased in recent months, â€śand our fund is down.â€ť
