Rancho Los Alamitos to host the Long Beach Camerata Singers

Rancho Los Alamitos Historic Ranch and Gardens announces an exciting addition to the annual Holiday Open House this December.

While visitors are invited to the free Holiday Open House on the evenings of December 11 – 13, 2019 from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m., there is an exclusive option for families with young children on the afternoon of Thursday, December 12.

For one afternoon only, the Long Beach Camerata Singers will perform prior to the evening tour. The presentation is a specially tailored holiday musical program for families with children ages 3-8 years old with stories about holiday parties and family traditions from the Rancho’s past. This fun, interactive children’s concert explores the musical concepts of Melody, Tempo, Dynamics, and Rhythm, as well as telling stories about family holiday traditions from the last century. Although the program is designed for young children, the whole family will be entertained and enlightened by the Long Beach Camerata Singers, who are dedicated to excellence in choral music.

The Thursday afternoon musical program will begin promptly at 3:30 p.m. and will be followed by light refreshments, children’s craft activities in the barnyard, and memorable tours of the decorated Ranch House. Children must be accompanied by an adult and reservations (including a modest reservation fee) are required.

The Rancho Museum Gift Store will be open for your shopping pleasure. Holiday Open House tours are free to the public, but parking reservations are required.
