SHALLOTTE—One group of local youth is helping people throughout the county get into the holiday spirit.
In recent weeks the multiple award-winning West Brunswick High School Vocal Music department members have performed at holiday gatherings and events. They have even caroled. This week they are visiting several area nursing homes, the courthouse and elementary schools.
But their big show is still to come.
At 7 p.m. Monday, Dec. 17, the entertainers will present their winter program at Odell Williamson Auditorium on the campus of Brunswick Community College.
The concert is free, and the community is invited to come and sing along to holiday favorites.
“The concert will include traditional music as well as a show choir program,” said Annette Harton, director and WBHS teacher. “Please come out to support the students as they share music of the holiday season and more.”
The concert combines a variety of talents from traditional choral to singing and dancing and includes the WBHS treble show choir, mixed show choir and the concert choir.
Show choir students incorporate singing, dancing and choreography into their programs year round.
“I try to give students a standard choral background and the choreography,” Harton said.
The school’s choreographer is Kevin Green. Harton and Green have been working tirelessly with students to perfect the performance.
The show is packed with energy and is anticipated to last about an hour.
While admission is free, canned goods and nonperishable items are being collected for area food banks at the show. Attendees are encouraged to bring items and spread the holiday spirit a little more this season.
