“Noël!” Christmas Is Coming!

Announcing the news that the Southside Virginia Community College (SVCC) Chorus will begin its fall rehearsals on Sunday, September 9, 2018 6:00-8:00PM at South Hill Presbyterian Church, 914 Mecklenburg Ave., South Hill, VA  23970. The SVCC Chorus concert will be held on Sunday, December 9th in South Hill and will also include another venue to be announced.

The music for this season is inspired by French Christmas carols using Noëls and Glorias of the angels. The Star lights the night sky for the Three Wise Men as they seek the way to the stable. Lighter holiday music is also included: such as, “Winter Wonderland” and “Baby, It’s Cold Outside” with other favorites. Instrumentalists will include cello, violin and flute. Other soloists and a variety of settings with instruments and voices will complete a delightful program. Carol Henderson is the director and Sally Tharrington is the pianist.

The SVCC Chorus appreciates the support of both the SVCC College and the SVCC College Foundation which allows this chorus to continue sharing music with the community. Most recently in April 2018, the SVCC Chorus presented two (2) exceptional concerts in South Hill and Clarksville, featuring a string quartet, string bass, flute, commissioned music and a visit from stringed instrument maker, Paul Becker of Chicago.

This musical variety of choral music provided by the SVCC Chorus is a welcome addition for the community in Southern Virginia. Comments from attendees in April 2018:

“ [I appreciate the] “diligence…to bring such a professional concert to our community,”

“the angelic voices of the ladies chorus accompanied by the strings created a sacred moment for me.”

“ [The SVCC Chorus is] truly bringing culture to Southside Virginia”.

“highlight [of the concert for me] was the variety of smaller groups…Sally playing…females singing…strings performing alone, solos, etc.”

Perhaps you would like learn some new holiday music and sing Noels and Christmas Glorias with the fine voices of the SVCC Chorus! The SVCC Chorus will begin its fall rehearsals on Sunday, September 9th at 6:00 PM at the South Hill Presbyterian Church. Registration is $20.00 payable to SVCC.
