ABAC Celebrates Season with Holiday Concert November 29

November 21, 2016

Holiday music designed to elevate concert-goers into the joy of the season ahead will be the primary order of business at the annual holiday concert at 5 p.m. on Nov. 29 in the Chapel of All Faiths at Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College.  The concert is a part of the First Tuesday Concert Series.

Dr. Susan Roe, Head of the ABAC Department of Fine Arts, said the holiday concert has been held annually at ABAC for 15 years. This event is open to the public at no charge.

The concert will begin with a prelude from Dr. Andy Lagrimas, assistant professor of piano and theory, a welcome from Roe, and a reading from Dr. Brian Ray, professor of English and theatre.  The concert will feature the ABAC Jazz Singers under the direction of Roe, the Instrumental Ensemble under the direction of Johnny Folsom, and accompaniment by Lagrimas.

ABAC Arts Connection Director Wayne Jones will perform “Sweet Little Jesus Boy,” followed by an audience sing-a-long led by Jones that will include the Christmas classics “The First Noel,” “Hark the Herald Angels Sing,” “O Come All Ye Faithful,” and “Silent Night.”
Roe will perform “O Holy Night” and “An Angel Breathing Out” before the ABAC Jazz Singers and the ABAC Instrumental Ensemble join past and present ABAC music students in the performance of “Everywhere Christmas Tonight.”

The entire community is invited to join ABAC faculty, staff, and students for an afternoon of holiday cheer.   For more information, interested persons can contact Roe at (229) 391-4943.
