Choir Kicks Off Holiday Season with Fall Concert

The Wilson College Choir rang in the holiday season Sunday, November 24 with their show “Sounds of the Season.” The show’s first half consisted of the songs “Beautiful Star of Bethlehem,” “In the Bleak Midwinter,” “The Lamb,” “The Manger Carol,” and “Sweet Was the Song.” The second half consisted of “Dance of the Sugar-Plum Fairy,” a solo song by freshman Rose Runyan ‘23, “Christmas Sanctus,” and “The Huron Carol.”
The first half got off to a great start, with the crowd larger than previous concerts and the choir warmed up. By the time intermission rolled around, more people were arriving at the chapel. The choir kept singing strongly throughout the second half of their performance, earning themselves many congratulations after the show from the audience.
The show only lasted 45 minutes, but it stayed with the audience long after the performance had ended. The choir returns for a repeat of “The Huron Carol” and a few new songs (some returning Wilson students would know) for Christmas Vespers on December 8. Come on out and support your Wilson Choir!
