Sounds of the Season

It's beginning to sound a lot like Christmas here at Vol State as the music department prepares for their annual holiday performance.
The Showstoppers directed by James Story, The Music Ensemble directed by Lynn Peterson, and Bluegrass Ablaze, directed by Mark Barnett, present the "Sounds of the Season" this weekend in the Wemyss Theater.
"I think it's a great collection of music favorites and new songs," said Showstopper, Kelsey Wilsher.
With classic songs like "Let it Snow" and new songs like "Big Band Santa," also with appearances from Santa Claus, the Grinch, and a few surprises, this show is bound to amaze you.

"Mr Story does a great job allowing us to be ourselves and work as an ensemble," said John Martin, a baritone, who said that he loves to entertain others.
"You will not get entertainment this good for the price of $5," said Andrew Kufman, who plays the Grinch.

These performers will not only sing their way into your souls, but they will dance their way into your heart. The performance has been choreographed by a former Vol State student, Natalie Klein, who now resides in California as a professional choreographer.
The cost is a suggested donation of $5 which will aid the Music Scholarship Fund. With a donation of $10 you will get a copy of the music CD that has Vol State students singing some of your favorite holiday tunes and admission to the show.
Show times are Friday, Nov. 30 and Saturday, Dec. 1 at 7:30 p.m.
