With the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, Lone Star College-Kingwood has the perfect stress reliever: two winter concerts.
The college’s Concert Choir will perform on campus Thursday, Dec. 6 at 7:30 p.m. in the Music Recital Hall. The 32-voice choir will present sacred and secular holiday songs, solos, and traditional carols. Dr. Robert Hunt, music faculty, will accompany on piano.
“It is always refreshing to hear the youthful and energetic sounds of college students enthusiastically sing together,” said Dr. Todd Miller, professor of music and conductor at LSC-Kingwood. “They love making music together, and their fresh faces and voices are truly inspiring to witness in a live concert!”
In addition, the Eclectic Voices of Kingwood (Evok), will present a unique and soothing concert, “Christmas Musings” on Dec. 7 at 7:30 p.m. at Good Shepherd Episcopal Church. Dr. Hunt will play meditative improvisations between the choral pieces, which will create a seamless hour of sound. Featured composers include Ralph Vaughn Williams, Kim Andre Arnesen, Ola Gjeilo, and Morten Lauridsen. There will be a reception with light refreshments following this concert.
“This concert will emphasize the quiet and gentle sounds that are so elusive this time of year,” Dr. Miller said. “We always look forward to this concert at Good Shepherd because our choral sound easily wafts through the building and over the ears of the listener. It is like food for the soul.”
All tickets for the Concert Choir performance are $7. Tickets for the Evok concert are $10 for adults and $7 for students and seniors. For more information on both performances, call 281-312-1709 or email Angie.Spargur@LoneStar.edu.
