Holiday concerts let students shine


Four choirs – women’s, show, chamber and concert – will sing out at the East Central High School choral concert Sunday, Dec. 8, at 3 p.m. at the Performing Arts Center. Listeners will enjoy “lots of favorite Christmas carols, and some new songs,” reports choral director Donna Tanner. “We expect a visit from Santa Claus!”

Seventy-five Oldenburg Academy musicians in grades 9-12 will perform pieces themed to “The Light of Christmas” Sunday, Dec. 8, at 4 p.m. in the auditorium, according to music teachers Kris Wampler and Brian Knueven. Some of the musical selections are “He is Born, the Divine Christ Child” and “Silent and Still” by the Academy Singers; “Angels Gloria” and “The Candlelight Canon” by the Concert Choir; “A Swingin’ Holiday,” “You’re a Mean one, Mr. Grinch” and “L’Inverno – Winter” from Vivaldi’s “Four Seasons” by the orchestra. Wampler reports, “We are featuring some of our new steel drum pans in a selection of Christmas carols and the musical theater group is preparing a short scene also.” Gabrielle Mungcal, Christopher Jarman, Emma Schulte and Brian Ulrich will play a Tschaikowsky valse on the two concert grand pianos and vocalist Claire Dickey will sing “Ave Maria” by Schubert.

The Sunman-Dearborn Middle School choral concert Monday, Dec. 9, at 6:30 p.m. at the ECHS Performing Arts Center boasts segments from its chamber, concert and show choirs. Holiday carols, Santa and fun are part of the merry mix, Tanner says.

“It’s Beginning to Look a lot Like Christmas” is the theme of the Batesville Primary School concert. About 300 first- and second-graders will vocalize Monday, Dec. 9, at 7 p.m. in the Batesville High School gym. The teacher observes, “It certainly will sound like Christmas, as students sing familiar songs” of the season. “Our students have been working hard at learning their songs.”
