Glenville, WV – The annual Glenville State College Choir and Chamber Singers Holiday Concert is scheduled for Tuesday, November 27th at 7:00 p.m. at Sand Fork Baptist Church in Sand Fork, West Virginia (Gilmer County). The evening will feature Christmas carols written from the 17th century until the 20th century as well as readings from students, faculty, and staff including GSC President Dr. Peter Barr.
“This concert is in the form of Lessons and Carols, which was made famous by King’s College in Cambridge, England. I want to give our students many different experiences in choral music, and this one is from the long tradition of wonderful choral music in England. The church setting is important as we are trying to do this type of concert as close to the original Lessons and Carols as possible. I encourage everyone to come and experience a wonderful night of Christmas music, new and old,” said GSC Choir Director Teresa Dody.
This event is free and open to the public. Donations will be accepted to raise funds for GSC students to perform with the West Virginia State Collegiate Honor Choir in February in Charleston.
