Christmas Carol Sing

By: Hope Menken

This year’s Hardin-Simmons  University Lighting Ceremony welcomed the Christmas season with a bang and was a fantastic start to the holiday festivities.

With finals only a week away the stress is beginning to sink in for many of us. If you are among those who are feeling the effects of too much coffee or are making the phrase, “I don't need sleep I need answers!” your life philosophy, the upcoming Carol Sing is the perfect excuse to take a break and justify your procrastination.

 Come and join us in a time of worship and fellowship with Christmas songs including O Come All Ye Faithful, God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen, Jingle Bells, In the Bleak Midwinter and I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day. With performances from many different ages, ensembles, and musicians this will be a great chance to step back from the finals stress, refocus on what is important and spend time with friends before the break. In addition to our choir. 

Here are some quotes from our performers.

“I am looking forward to seeing all of our hours of practice come together and to have the chance to perform with friends to celebrate the Christmas season.”

-Katie Caudle, freshman, music education major, Taiwan-

“I am excited to celebrate the Christmas season through song.”

-Alexis Schultz, freshman, nursing major, Decatur-

“I can’t wait to see the different generations come and sing together as one group no matter their background or age. It’s really special to be a part of something so rich with tradition as well as simple fun. I adore singing and even more when it’s to worship God. Christmas is one of my favorite times of year and holiday songs are so much fun.”

 -Maddox Carr, sophomore worship leadership major, Fort Worth-

“I am excited to see all of the different people performing and what each group brings to the performance.”

-Rebekah Higgens, junior, worship leadership major, Amarillo-

Headed by Dr. Bob Brooks, senior development officer, and Dr. Dee Romines, associate  professor of music education and director of choral, this is sure to be a beautifully executed performance that will be well worth your time. The Christmas Carol Sing will be held in Logsdon Chapel on Thursday at 6:00 p.m.
