The Coahoma Community College (CCC) Concert Choir and Memphis Chamber Orchestra will unite once again to spread the holiday cheer during CCC’s annual Christmas concert.
Themed “A Royal Christmas,” this year’s event is slated for 7 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 3. in the Pinnacle.
The concert, which serves as a special holiday gift from CCC to the community, is free and open to the public. The annual event is sponsored in partnership with CCC’s Lyceum Committee.
According to CCC Music Department Chair and Director of Choral Activities Kelvin Towers, this year's concert will showcase several soloists from the choir with the well-beloved major work "Gospel Mass," written by Robert Ray.
The repertoire will also include a Kenya folksong, "Wana Baraka", with African drumming as well as traditional Christmas favorites.
In addition, audience members will also be treated with selections from the Greenville Weston High School Choir as well as the Clarksdale High School Choir.
All participating choirs and the orchestra will band together at the conclusion of the concert to perform the grand finale, “Joy To The World.”
