CU choir, singers present 'Carols for Christmas'
Looking for some holiday spirit? Then head to the Cameron University Theatre on Thursday when the Cameron University Concert Choir and the Cameron University Centennial Singers will present "Carols for Christmas" at 7:30 p.m.
The Concert Choir, conducted by Christian Morren and accompanied by Tom Willoughby on piano, will present a repertoire of carols both old and new, ranging from traditional English to Spanish.
"A special highlight for the Concert Choir is their performance of 'Mary Shivered,' composed by Cameron's own Dr. Greg Hoepfner," Morren said.
J.D. Little will provide flute accompaniment on "Mary Shivered."
"Other special guests will be Tom Willoughby and Doris Lambert, who will provide four hands piano accompaniment on 'I Saw Three Ships,'" Morren says.
Soloists for the program include Haleigh Adams, Khalil Cabera-Tosado, Amy Morales and Corbyn Naumen, all of Lawton. Student Gabrial Caron, Altus, will serve as guest conductor for a portion of the program.
The Centennial Singers, conducted by Doris Lambert and accompanied by David Anderson, will sing a wide variety of Christmas music, including familiar favorites as well as new songs. Jim Lambert will provide drumset accompaniment for a portion of the Centennial Singers program.
The Centennial Singers will start their program with a fun setting of Leroy Anderson's "Sleigh Ride" arranged by Mark Brymer. That upbeat number will be followed by "Some Children See Him," a ballad composed in 1951 as a Christmas card for family friends by Alfred Burt. Arranged by Joseph Martin for choral ensemble, the number will feature soloists Stacia Prucha, Makayla Heibert and Lorenzo Butler.
