Sleigh bells ring, are you listenin’? Lone Star College-Montgomery invites you to get in the spirit at its annual Holiday Benefit Concert, an evening of musical holiday magic on Friday, December 8, at 7:30pm in the Performing Arts Center (building D). All proceeds are 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 Holiday Benefit Concert will include performances by the LSC-Montgomery Concert Choir, Chamber Singers, and Symphonic Band and The Woodlands Area Youth Symphony (WAYS). The Chamber Singers are the premier vocal ensemble at LSC-Montgomery and every member is on scholarship. The ensemble tours regularly, including recent trips to Cuba, New Orleans, Austin and San Antonio. The Symphonic Band is LSC-Montgomery's largest instrumental ensemble. All the performers will be surrounded by festive decorations to get you in the spirit of the season.
Under the direction of LSC-Montgomery music professors Cristina Mendoza, Dr. Mark Marotto, and Darryl Bayer the concert will feature an array of traditional carols and familiar holiday favorites.
“I am so honored to be able to give back to the community alongside talented LSC-Montgomery music students,” said music Department Chair and Director of Choral Activities, Dr. Marotto. “We are always dedicated to performing great music from many eras and holiday music has a special place in everyone’s hearts.”
