Gansberg, a 2013 Carson High School graduate, is majoring in elementary education at Concordia University Wisconsin. At CHS, she sang in several choirs and spent several years in the soprano section of the Nevada Northern Zone Honor Choirs and All-State Choirs. At Concordia, she has sung in several of its choirs also, including several solos.

At Sunday’s performance, Gansberg is planning on singing “Blue Moon” by Richard Rodgers and Lorenz Hart in keeping with the blue moon total lunar eclipse coming up on Jan. 31.

Also in the program is a Norwegian march, “Valdres,” and a tribute to Ray Charles, along with other marches and audience favorites.

The performance will be at 3 p.m. at the First Presbyterian Church, at the corner of Division and King streets.
