The Chamber Choir of Kershaw County will present its annual Christmas Concert today at 7 p.m. in the Wood Auditorium at the Fine Arts Center (FAC) of Kershaw County. Joining them in this performance will be area musicians (strings, flute, percussion) and vocalists to celebrate the 25th Christmas Concert.
The concert will reflect various styles from medieval to modern and various countries including the music of England, Spain, Germany, and the United States along with traditional carols from France and the southern Appalachian mountains. A highlight of the evening will be a Bach unaccompanied sonata played by violinist David Pazdursky. The choir is under the direction of Dr. Susan Wyatt.
Now in its 25th year, the Chamber Choir of Kershaw County is a result of the evolution of the Concert Choirs of Kershaw County, which featured a Concert Choir, Chamber Choir, Boys’ Choir and Girls’ Choir. These groups have toured the United States, performing in New Orleans, New York City and Washington, D.C., and other cities. In addition, Dr. Wyatt’s groups have performed in the Governor’s Carolighting which is televised statewide and numerous Choral Festivals.
"The CCKC Christmas Concert is sure to get you in the mood for the holidays," Jane Peterson, FAC Director of Marketing said. "The combination of the beautiful voices, along with the leadership and direction of Dr. Susan Wyatt ensure an evening of inspiring music just in time for Christmas."
