A Rocky Mountain Christmas with Juliet features timeless holiday classics
December 9, 2015
Christmas is quickly approaching; a time when our thoughts turn to loved ones and traditions. For many residents of Grand County and the visitors who frequent this area during the holidays that means family, feasting and maybe some time spent around a roaring fire. For Grand County's young singing star Juliet Shams that means performing in her annual Christmas concert, "A Rocky Mountain Christmas with Juliet".
Two weeks from Sunday on Dec. 20 Juliet Shams, a senior at Middle Park High School, will once again perform her yearly Christmas concert in Grand Lake. Along with Juliet the concert will feature pianist Krys Boy and flautist Mandy Cluck providing the musical accompaniment for the young lady.
The concert will be held on Sunday Dec. 20 at the Grand Lake Community House from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. A Meet & Greet featuring appetizers and refreshments will be held from 6 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. Semi-formal attire is recommended for those attending the concert but is not required.
The concert will feature Juliet singing a variety of timeless and traditional Christmas favorites. "It is a great family event," said Jill Buckingham, Juliet's mother. "Along with the music Santa will be there, elves will be there and there will be delicious holiday food."
Juliet, 17, is one of Grand County's musical luminaries. The young woman has an intense passion for music and singing and along with her annual Christmas concert Juliet is a member the Middle Park High School choir and sings at all MPHS events. Juliet is also a member of the Grand Arts Council and has volunteered to sing at veteran's events in the county for the last five years.
Along with her "A Rocky Mountain Christmas with Juliet" concert Shams will also be performing as an archangel during Grand County's living nativity event scheduled for Dec. 12 at 6 p.m. in Polhamus Park in Granby.
