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
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.
