Indiana Choir To Perform At White House

SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) - The South Bend Symphonic Choir is playing the White House.

Marvin Curtis is the choir's director and dean of Indiana University South Bend's Raclin School of the Arts.

He says the choir will perform a concert of holiday songs Dec. 21 in Washington, D.C.

The choir includes 44 members, but just 20 plus the director and a pianist are going on the two-day trip.

A number of musical and artistic groups perform at the White House during the holiday season.

Curtis said he doesn't know whether President Barack Obama and his family will attend the performance.
