Baron Singers to perform 'Christmas Celebration' on Dec. 3

MOUNT VERNON - The Baron Singers of Brewton-Parker College will be celebrating the 10-year anniversary of their annual "Christmas Celebration" concert Friday, Dec. 3, on the BPC campus, director Glenn Eernisse has announced.
The free concert begins at 8 p.m. in Saliba Chapel.
Baron Singers alumni have been invited to the celebration, and those in attendance will join the current ensemble on the concert's traditional finale, "Go, Tell It on the Mountain."
The Baron Singers is an auditioned student ensemble consisting of eight singers and an instrumental combination well known for its high-energy performances under the direction of Eernisse, an associate professor of music and chair of the Brewton-Parker Division of Music.
The Baron Singers will open the concert in costume for "'Twas the Night before Christmas" and will follow with performances that include a 1950s style piece called "Slow Dancing in the Snow;" a tropical beat with "On This Winter Holiday;" a jazzy tune originally recorded by Louis Armstrong titled "Cool Yule;" an a cappella arrangement of "Silent Night;" and "Breath of Heaven," recorded by Amy Grant.
" This is the type of presentation that should be fun for all ages," Eernisse said.
Vocalists in the Baron Singers are: Steven Dawson, Doug Pittman, Dallas Wilke, Sharon McHenry, Katelyn Pierce, Krista Vickery, Linda Cranmer and Lisa Vincent.
Baron Singers band members are: Chris Elkins, Brandon Pafford, Jamie Sexton, David Mathis, Jonathan Lewis, Brandon Herrington and Danny Steis. Michael Crosby is the sound technician.
In their earlier years, the Baron Singers were identified with folk music but have evolved into a very versatile performing ensemble, including styles from gospel and spirituals to jazz, pop and rock music from the past and present.
In addition to performances on campus and at area events, the Baron Singers take an annual tour.
Inquiries concerning the concert or the Baron Singers may be directed to the BPC Music Division at 583-3136.
