MOUNT VERNON—Brewton-Parker College’s Division of Music hosted a joint fall concert of the Concert Choir and the Baron Ringers, a hand bell ensemble, Nov. 15. Gilder Recital Hall on the Mount Vernon campus was filled with the sounds of Christmas and praise to the Lord Almighty. The program of traditional and some non-traditional music, such as African composition “Sherekea Usafari!” by Cathy Moklebust, delighted the audience.
