ARLINGTON — The Northern Sound Choirs present Sonus Boreal in its spring concert, "Music of the Americas," on Sunday, May 18, at 3 p.m. at the Byrnes Performing Arts Center. Participating local youth choirs will include Sunnyside Elementary's Choir and Orff Ensemble.

Tickets are $12, or $10 for students and seniors. Admission is free for children 5 years and younger. To buy your tickets, log onto www.northernsoundchoirs.org. A limited number of tickets will be available at the door.
