1 Park Place, Ohio University, Athens, Ohio

9pm show only, the Local Girls are joined by Calliope Feminist Choir.

The Athens-based singing group The Local Girls ( has held its Annual Community Christmas Concert at Baker University Center for nearly 15 years.

This holiday, the trio will make merry at the new Baker Center, a fact that thrills group member Mimi Hart, who says, “We thought it was a great opportunity for people to come and see the building and see our annual show.” The event will include original arrangements of traditional Christmas songs and numbers featuring the Athens group Calliope Feminist Choir. Hart says The Local Girls, who have taken their precision harmony performances to the White House and on tour in Europe, love this show because of the sentimentality of singing with friends, family and community members. She especially likes when children join the group on stage. “We pass out lyric sheets. It’s a time of shared singing more than performance,” she says. “We look forward to it every year.” (
