LMC performing arts ensembles come together for Holiday Collage
The Lake Michigan College Visual & Performing Arts Department promises to put even the most stubborn Scrooge into the spirit with its Holiday Collage Concert at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 7. The performance will be held in the LMC Mendel Center Grand Upton Hall on the Benton Harbor Campus at 2755 E. Napier Ave.
In the warm and inviting dinner theatre-like atmosphere, audience members will be treated to a tapestry of drama, and vocal and instrumental music as Visual & Performing Arts ensembles come together for a holiday celebration. Attendees will also enjoy refreshments.
Groups performing are LMC Jazz Band, directed by Dr. Robert Lunn, Instrumental Chamber Ensemble, directed by Dr. Abigail Koo, Concert Choir and Vocal Chamber Ensemble, directed by Rebecca Derbas-Selvidge, LMC Rock/Pop Ensemble, directed by Don Savoie, and theatre students under the instruction of Dr. Patrick King.
“This annual concert has grown into a community favorite for celebrating the season,” Lunn said. “The depth and range of talent we have a Lake Michigan College makes for a rich, joyous, and purely entertaining event.”
Musical selections will include many traditional holiday favorites, including “Carol of the Bells,” “My Favorite Things,” “Sleigh Ride,” and “The Christmas Song.” Students of the theatre program will perform a selection of festive holiday readings.
Admission is free, however, a $5 donation or a new, unwrapped toy for the Toys for Tots program is suggested.
