The Kolb Family, each accomplished choral performers, will present a Christmas concert for all ages in View’s Gould Hall on Saturday, November 30 at 3 p.m. Rob Kolb, Lauralyn Kolb, David Kolb, and Katrina Schell are all from the Mohawk Valley and are highly acclaimed in voice and choir mastery.
The selections were put together especially for this occasion and include some light favorites such as Silver Bells, Winter Wonderland and White Christmas as well as some classical pieces including works by Handel.
Rob is Director of Choral Activities and Conductor Master-words Chorale at Hamilton College.
He has been connected to the North Country for years as residents of Old Forge and further north come to sing in the Commu-nity Choir at Hamilton College where he has been involved with the chorus for 33 years.
This is not the first time Rob has performed at View.
Familiar with View’s Executive Director Jennifer Potter Hayes, he was invited to conduct a choir concert for the opening of the arts center.
Lauralyn Kolb teaches voice at Hamilton College. She and Rob met when they were both in the choir at Occidental College.
Their son David and daughter-in-law Katrina Schell met singing in the choir at Hamilton College. Together, they provide baritone, soprano, mezzo soprano and tenor voices.
Tickets to the event are available now for $12, $10 for members and $5 for students.
Following the concert, hot chocolate and cookies will be served in the reception area.
