“It’s Christmas” – CASC New Horizon Show Choir Performing in December
The “It’s Christmas” program will be performed by the Carl Albert State College New Horizon Show Choir on Thursday, December 1st at 7 p.m., and again on Sunday, December 4th at 4 p.m. Both presentations will be at the Hamilton Auditorium on the Poteau campus.
CASC Choir Director Dana Dinsmore Davis stated, “We are so excited about this opportunity. In my 20-year tenure at CASC, this is the first opportunity we have to do an extended Christmas concert.” She continued, “This is going to be so unique because we will have a wide variety of entertainment within one show. The first part of the show will be secular selections, with the second half more of a sacred theme. In addition to singing, there will be a hand bell choir from First Baptist Church in Sallisaw directed by Bill Aydelott, A former adjunct instructor at the Sallisaw campus. A Readers Theatre will be a representation of the Sallisaw campus and directed by Bill Day, an adjunct instructor at Sallisaw. Guests performers will include community members, previous Show Choir members, and some CASC faculty and staff.”
Prior to the show starting, Santa will be available for photos in the hallway of the auditorium. Admission will be a donation of canned goods with the donations going to Kibois. The food donation covers both the program and Santa photos.
In conclusion, Dinsmore Davis stated, “Our hope is this will be our Christmas gift to our students, CASC employees, our alumni, and the community. Let’s gather for a few moments of peace and appreciation for the blessings of Christmas.”
