Kennesaw State University Community and Alumni Choir
KENNESAW, Ga.—The Kennesaw State University Community and Alumni Choir will present its annual holiday concert on Saturday, Dec. 4 at 8 p.m. in the Performance Hall of the Dr. Bobbie Bailey & Family Performance Center. This performance will feature 90 singers from the KSU community and beyond, including alumni, community members and KSU faculty and staff.
Associate Professor of Music Leslie Blackwell explains, “It’s unique because of who we are as a group. We are a group of volunteers, and it’s exciting to watch the group grow as the music becomes a part of them. We began rehearsals at the beginning of September, and I love the energy of the group as they strive to improve and move towards perfection.”
Featured selections will include contemporary and traditional holiday favorites, some French carols, selections from Robert Shaw and a few melodies from Mozart. The performance will conclude with “Joy,” a powerful gospel number from the 1996 film "The Preacher’s Wife."
“It’s going to be a wonderful holiday concert,” Blackwell says. “It’s a wonderful cultural experience and a holiday gift for the audience.”
Tickets for the performance are $10 and $5 for students. To purchase tickets, please visit the KSU box office or call 770-423-6650.
