The Erskine College Department of Music will present two Christmas concerts Saturday, Dec. 7.
At 2 p.m. that day, Sinfonia and Jazz Band, as well as a number of chamber groups and soloists, will perform in the Bowie Arts Center, presenting “A Concert of Carols.”
Assistant Professor of Music and Director of Instrumental Studies Dr. Deborah Caldwell said the program for “A Concert of Carols” will consist mostly of Christmas carols, with the instrumentalists performing and in some cases the audience singing along.
At 6:30 p.m., the Choraleers, Bella Voce, and Chamber Singers will offer “An Erskine Christmas” in Memorial Hall. Admission is free and the public is welcome. Donations will be received to support the Choraleers’ Lithuania Project, a planned return visit to Lithuania in the spring.
Assistant Professor of Music Dr. Keith Timms, who conducts the Choraleers, said the Erskine Christmas program will feature both sacred and secular literature, including traditional Christmas tunes, new original works, jazz renditions, and an audience sing-along. Accompanying the singers will be piano, organ, trumpet, string bass, violin, and a string quartet. Assistant Professor of English Shane Bradley will serve as narrator for a portion of the program.
