CLARKSDALE – Coahoma Community College’s Choral Music Department is helping to usher in the excitement of Christmas and the Holiday season with its annual Christmas concert.

Themed this year “Sounds of the Season”, the highly anticipated concert is slated for 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 4, in the Pinnacle.

The event, funded in partnership with CCC’s Lyceum Committee, is free and open to the public. “Each year the community eagerly looks forward to this event as it puts everyone in the spirit of the Christmas season,” said Kelvin Towers, CCC’s director of choral activities.“This will be an enjoyable experience that you don’t want to miss!”

Comprised of talented singers from across the Mississippi Delta, Memphis, and the Helena, AR area, CCC’s Concert Choir will offer the audience a wide repertoire of songs from spiritual and gospel, to jazz and traditional holiday favorites.

This year, CCC will continue its unique partnership with the Memphis Chamber Orchestra who will be featured during its opening performance, Robert Shaw’s classic “The Many Moods of Christmas”. In addition, the audience will enjoy the sounds of Jim Hill High School of Jackson, MS.

The night will also feature CCC’s Men Chorus, Women Chorus, as well as small Broadway vocal groups. Other selections will include Betelehemu (a Nigerian Christmas carol) with African percussion and the hit song Hallelujah from Quincy Jones’ “Soulful Hallelujah Celebration” collection.

“This year's concert promises to be all that you expect and much more,” said Towers. "So put on your coat and hat and come join us at Coahoma."
