For many years the Springfield College music department has put on an Annual Holiday Concert for the students and faculty to come and feel the holiday spirit on campus. This year it will be taking place on Thursday, Dec. 12 in the Fuller Arts Center at 7:30 p.m.
“The concert always has a few surprises,” said Christopher Haynes of the Visual and Performing Arts Department. “This year we have special guest Carmine Oyola Callander coming to perform a special solo.”
The concert will consist of performances from the Springfield College Singers, the on-campus band, and other ensembles, performing music of the holidays, as well as other popular choices.
There will be a combination of holiday music and selection of songs from the chorus. The performing arts program is not looking to disappoint by also playing popular favorites and special requests.
This concert is open to anyone who wants to come by and spread the holiday cheer. The uniqueness of this event is that it is one of the longest consecutively performed events in the cultural life of Springfield College.
“Expect to be surprised by the level of talent by our amazing musical students, and to get in the holiday spirit with a sing-along of Christmas carols and refreshments after the concert,” continued Haynes.
This event is the last part of the William Simpson Performing Arts Series that has been taking place on campus this semester. This event will tie the whole series together by bringing everyone together to sing along in holiday cheer.
The Visual and Performing Arts program works very hard to put these events together, and their efforts will show through this last event. This event brings the college together one last time before we disperse for break, and keeps us in high spirits for the holidays.
