CWC music department presents holiday concert
January 1, 2011
The Central Wyoming College Music Department presents its annual Festival of Carols on Sunday, December 11, at 3 p.m. at the Riverton United Methodist Church, 1116 W. Park Ave.
Featured groups will be the Handbell Choir, the Collegiate Chorale, and the vocal ensemble CWC JAZZMAGIC.
The performance includes familiar and not-so-familiar holiday music, with selected readings about the Christmas season. Admission to this performance is free; however, a free-will offering will be taken to support the Fremont County Good Samaritan Center and the Lander Care And Share Food Bank.
“Last year, this performance raised over $1000 for these two worthwhile charities in Fremont County,” said Robert Hussa, one of the producers of the concert. “We are always happy that we have a generous audience to help those in need.”
The Handbell Choir is directed by Sharon Dalton, and the performance will include some trumpet work from former CWC staff member Kelly Dehnert.
The performance also includes audience participation. “We hope to see many of our friends there, and help us celebrate the season,” Hussa said. “Our groups are excited to perform this show once again.”
There is limited seating in the church, and the performance is often completely full. Audience members will be able to get into the church sanctuary beginning at 2:30 p.m
