Welcome to the NEBO HOLIDAY CHORUS & ORCHESTRA website! 

The NEBO HOLIDAY CHORUS & ORCHESTRA (NHCO) was established by residents of Spanish Fork, Utah in June 2017. We hope to promote the performing arts, provide quality performances of large choral works for free to the community in Southern Utah County, and exercise and improve the artistic skills of those performing in the choir and orchestra. 

During this year's Christmas season, approximately 280 musicians will be performing together to bring Handel's Messiah to our communities. Performers include auditioned professional and hobby musicians, high school students, and independent voice and instrumental music teachers, including from local public schools and area universities. The choir members and most orchestra participants are volunteers, unpaid both for the weekly rehearsals and for the two concerts performed this year. 

The rehearsals will take place from the end of October through the middle of December 2017 and will involve the finest musicians from our community. We are truly honored to work with such fine musicians and would like to express our great appreciation for the support we received from Salem High School and Spanish Fork High School as well as our other sponsors. We are looking forward to seeing you at our auditions, rehearsals and/or performances on December 18th and 20th, 2017 in Salem and Spanish Fork respectively!
