The J.E. Harrison Middle School band, chorus and orchestra will join several other local school music groups this holiday season in Pittsburgh's 45th Annual Holiday Choral Program.
J.E. Harrison Middle's performance, like all of the program's concerts, will be held on the grand staircase of the Allegheny County Courthouse, 436 Grant St., downtown Pittsburgh, PA 15219.
Twenty-four local groups will participate in this year's program. The Harrison students' time to perform is Tuesday, Dec. 18, from 12:20 p.m. to 1 p.m. In addition to the opportunity to watch the performances in person, each performance will be broadcast on the Grant Street side of the county courthouse so that downtown shoppers and workers may enjoy them, as well.

Participating schools are also making donations of filled stockings to the Allegheny County Department of Human Services' Holiday Project, a program that, since the late 1960s, has provided holiday gifts to children and youth who receive services through the county human services system.
Concertgoers can make donations of unwrapped gifts. More information about the Holiday Project, including suggested gifts, is available here.
