PA High’s chamber orchestra highlights special Music Live with Lunch show

This month, organizers of Music Live with Lunch are changing format.

Rather than playing a set at noon on the third Tuesday of the month, the Port Angeles High School Chamber Orchestra plays at 3:30 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 5, at St. Luke’s Episcopal Church, 525 N. Fifth Ave. The group plays a number of selections for 45 minutes in the sanctuary including Handel’s “Overture from Messiah,” Bach’s “Allegro from Brandenburg Concerto No. 3,” and John Lennon and Paul McCartney’s “Eleanor Rigby.” Tea and cookies precedes the performance in the parish hall at 3 p.m. The luncheon returns to its regular format at noon on Feb. 20. Tickets for the chamber orchestra show are $10 at the door or in advance at the church’s office from 9 a.m.-noon Monday-Thursday with proceeds supporting local, regional and global concerns. For more information, call 683-4862.
