It's Gaudete Sunday, aka the joyful third Sunday in Advent season, which makes it a perfect day for the religious and secular alike to enjoy a 3 p.m. matinee of the McKinleyville Community Choir's Holiday Concert at the Arcata Playhouse. The show is free — donations are appreciated — and the show will feature a live backing band and many of the usual suspects in regards to seasonal songs as well as tunes in Latin, Spanish and Czech. Czech? Could it be that the choir will be performing the famous English carol about the "good" Bohemian King Wenceslas — who was famously fratricidally murdered — in the modern language of his people? There's only one way to find out.
