Baron Singers to perform ‘Christmas Celebration’ on Dec. 2

MOUNT VERNON – The Baron Singers of Brewton-Parker College will be performing their 11th annual “Christmas Celebration” concert Friday, Dec. 2, on the BPC campus, director Glenn Eernisse has announced.
The free concert begins at 8 p.m. in Saliba Chapel.
The Baron Singers is an auditioned student ensemble consisting of nine 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 with their traditional “’Twas the Night before Christmas” and will follow with performances that include “Jingle Bells;” “Baby, It’s Cold Outside;” “Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree;” “Boogie Woogie Santa Claus;” a 1950s style piece called “All Alone Beneath the Mistletoe;” “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas;” “Christmas Time is Here;” and the concert’s traditional finale, “Go, Tell It on the Mountain.”
“ This is a wonderful opportunity to attend a light holiday concert that people of all ages would enjoy,” Eernisse said.
Vocalists in the Baron Singers are: Jonathan Bates, Hayley Boisseau, John DeBorde, Caroline Foster, Adrianne Fox, April Hutchins, Lisa Vincent, Doug Pittman and Dallas Wilke.
Baron Singers band members are: Eernisse, Brandon Herrington, Jonathan Lewis, Jacob Martens, John Reed and Jamie Sexton. 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, and 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 Shannon Summerlin in the BPC Music Division at 583-3136.
