Citywide Children’s Chorus of Redwood City to Entertain at Caltrain Trains for Tots Event

Redwood City, CA - November 19, 2003 - Redwood City, CA – When Santa’s Toy Train visits the Redwood City Caltrain station on November 30th, the crowds of families with wide-eyed kids will be enjoying music provided by the Citywide Children’s Chorus of Redwood City.

For the third year in a row, Caltrain will be transformed into Santa’s glittering sleigh the weekend of November 29-30, and stopping at the Redwood City Caltrain Station at approximately 6:20 pm on Sunday, November 30, as a benefit for the Salvation Army/U.S. Marine Corps Reserves’ Toys for Tots program. At each of the train’s 20-minute stops, people can donate a new, unwrapped toy, join in singing with onboard carolers and a Salvation Army brass band, and rub shoulders with Santa, Mrs. Clause, and other characters. It’s a great way to usher in the holiday season, and help the less-fortunate by donating a toy to Toys for Tots.

At the Redwood City Caltrain station, the Citywide Children’s Chorus of Redwood City will be singing holiday favorites for the crowd beginning at approximately 5:45 pm, until the train’s arrival. The Children’s Chorus was formed from a singing program offered by the Redwood City Parks, Recreation and Community Services Department (, and continues to gather new singers each year that sign up for the Parks Department chorus class. This local group of boys and girls has performed locally at the ‘Tis the Season Parade and at Filoli, and have also performed with Tom Chapin and the Bayshore Lyric Opera Company.

For the complete schedule of all the stops for Caltrain’s Santa’s Toy Train benefit for Toys for Tots on November 29 and 30, visit the Caltrain website at More information about Toys for Tots is available at Visit Redwood City’s new website at for information about the City and its services, the community, recreation programs, education, and City government.
