The annual Twelfth Night Concert — hosted this year by First United Church of Oak Park (at 4 p.m.) — will take place on the 12th, which seems appropriate, if not historically correct (traditionally it's 12 nights from Christmas, not New Year's). Undaunted, the choirs from First United, Grace Episcopal Church, Pilgrim Congregational Church, Unity Temple and City Voices will share the spotlight in the largest combined-choir event of the year. A freewill offering will benefit PASO - West Suburban Action Project (Proyecto de Acción de los Suburbios del Oeste) a community-based social justice organization.
