Event Details

The Limestone College & Community Chorus will perform “Holy Silence, Holy Sound” at Fullerton Auditorium.

Admission to the 7 p.m. concert is free and the public is invited to attend.

The 18-member chorus – conducted by Dr. Gena Poovey, Professor of Choral/Vocal Music Education and Director of Choral Activities at Limestone – includes 10 students from the College and eight members of the local community. Accompanist will be Limestone Professor of Music Dr. David Thompson.

The concert format is one of “lessons and carols,” and the music will include many favorite Christmas tunes, old and new. Visual images will be incorporated to recall holiday traditions at Limestone College from over the years and to celebrate festivities of the present.

The audience will hear familiar tunes such as “Sing We Now of Christmas,” “Children Go Where I Send Thee,” “Joy to the World,” and “Good Christians All Rejoice.” Other well-known carols arranged with new twists will include “O Little Town of Bethlehem” and “Keep Silence.”

In addition, a new gospel style piece, “Walkin’ Down the Road to Bethlehem,” and a favorite piece from the “Godspell” musical, “Prepare Ye the Way of the Lord,” will give the audience the toe-tapping moments that everyone anticipates during a holiday concert.

Various instrumental accompaniments will include flute, trumpet, and clarinet, all performed by students from the Limestone College Department of Music.
