It has been around 24-years, but the Kentucky Christmas Chorus in Lexington will not be held this holiday season.

Renee Jackson, President of the Downtown Lexington Corporation said it's because of declining attendance.

She said other, smaller events would be held.

The annual event used to be held in Rupp Arena and drew thousands of people.  But, as the crowds got smaller over the years, the event was moved to the smaller Singletary Center for the Arts at U.K.

"And, even then it was difficult to fill it on the night of the performance," said DLC President Renee Jackson.

She said it is possible that the show could come back in the future.
