College's Annual Holiday Concert to Benefit Interfaith of The Woodlands
Published on: November 22, 2011
Continuing the annual tradition of performing to benefit a local non-profit organization, the Lone Star College-Montgomery choirs and jazz band will perform a holiday concert on Thursday, December 8, at 7:30 p.m., in the mainstage theatre in the Performing Arts Center (Building D).
The entire family is invited to join LSC-Montgomery in giving back to the community, as all concert proceeds and contributions will be donated to Interfaith of The Woodlands, a faith-based organization that brings people together to build a more loving and caring community through service.
The concert will feature traditional carols, familiar tunes, and upbeat holiday favorites led by Kris Chapman and Dr. Dominick DiOrio, professors of music at LSC-Montgomery.
“We’re delighted to be raising money for Interfaith of The Woodlands,” said DiOrio, who serves as the director of choral activities at LSC-Montgomery. “The organization plays such an important role in bringing aid to our local community, and we are so happy to partner with them again for our annual holiday concert."
This is the sixth year that proceeds from the holiday concert have been donated to a local non-profit organization and the third year that LSC-Montgomery has partnered with Interfaith of The Woodlands.
“Interfaith of the Woodlands is delighted and honored to be the recipient of the proceeds from the holiday choir concert,” said Dr. Ann Snyder, CEO and president of Interfaith of The Woodlands. “We are appreciative of the support shown to our community by LSC-Montgomery as we can continue to serve our families in need this holiday season.”
Tickets for the holiday concert cost $10 for general admission and $5 for faculty, staff and students. Additional donations will be accepted.
