Preview: Joy! Deck the Halls

Jim Fischer

The Columbus Gay Men's Chorus celebrates the season each year with its "Joy" concerts. Director Tim Sarsany said he tries to find music to appeal to everyone and noted that the group typically does seasonal music beyond Christmas songs.

This year's highlights include a newly commissioned arrangement of songs from The Carpenters'Christmas Portrait album and "Marvelous Holiday Sweater," complete with a parade of sweaters as the guys try to out-awful each other.
