Piedmont Virginia Community College Chorus to Present Holiday Concert

The Piedmont Virginia Community College Chorus will perform its annual “Holiday Concert” on Sunday, December 8, 2019, at 3:00 p.m. The performance will be held in the Main Stage Theatre of the V. Earl Dickinson Building, located on the main campus in Charlottesville. The public is invited to attend this free performance celebrating the approach of the holiday season.

The chorus will continue its tradition of blending classical and modern choral pieces with spirituals and familiar holiday favorites for a diverse program. Highlights will include excerpts from George Frideric Handel’s classic holiday work “Messiah,” modern composer John Rutter’s “What Sweeter Music” and special arrangements of “Sleigh Bells” and “Baby, It’s Cold Outside.”

Directed by Instructor of Music Melody Day, the PVCC Chorus is a one-credit class open to students and community members without audition. New members are always welcome.
