2017 Christmas at PC
The Department of Music at Presbyterian College presents Christmas at PC 2017: AND TO ALL THE EARTH on Saturday and Sunday, December 2nd and 3rd.
PC’s music ensembles prepare for the Christmas performances all during the Fall term. Choirs actually begin preparing in August and department-wide combined rehearsals begin in September. All through the September, October, and November as other performances on campus are being prepared and presented, work on the Christmas event continues in the background. Belk Auditorium begins to take on a Christmas appearance in mid-November as the sets, lighting, and movements are being planned and rehearsed.
The 2017 Christmas at PC will, for the first time, include an ensemble of choir alumni of the CPC programs which began in 1999. Along with their friends and fellow singers, these outstanding graduates will take the stage and join with current PC musicians and Conductor Porter Stokes in a joyous celebration of PC and Christmas spirit. Music sung by the combined forces will represent the multiple generations of PC students that have taken part in the 19 years of this PC tradition.
Also, in 2017 because of the inclusion of the alumni singers, CPC: AND TO ALL THE EARTH will be presented only twice: December 2nd at 7 p.m. and 3rd at 3 p.m.
