The members present at the concert were Mariella Squire, Tamara Mitchell, Sophia Birden, Jackie Ritz, Marcie Selva, Jeannine Haley, Lawrence Workman, Richard Cost, Patrick Stamp, Paul Libby, Janet Nadeau, Scott Voisine, Joanne Zafonte (accompanying pianist) and Charles Closser (maestro).
During the evening, the audience listened to two solos, one by Mariella Squire who sang The Greatest Gift of All and Scott Voisine sang Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas.
Applause was heard after every song and the church was filled with many church members, UMFK supporters and community members.
