WCHS Winter Concert at Singletary Center on Dec. 5
One-hundred-eighty-seven students from Woodford County High School will perform in the 1,500-seat concert hall at the Singletary Center for the Arts in Lexington on Tuesday, Dec. 5, at 7 p.m.
The Winter Choir Concert will feature performances by both hand-bell choirs, a-cappella groups (the all-girl Honeybees and co-ed Mellow Jackets), concert choir and advanced choir. For many of these students, this upcoming concert will happen on the biggest stage of their performance lives.
“We’re trying to up the game,” WCHS choir director Cooper Schrimsher explained, “make this the best and biggest concert yet.”
He said the Winter Concert will feature familiar songs of the season, including “You’re a Mean One, Mr. Grinch” and “Please Come Home for Christmas,” and “The Twelve Days After Christmas,” which he described as “a little twist” on the holiday classic.
Schrimsher said the upcoming Winter Choir Concert at the Singletary Center is a chance for his seniors who do not continue their music education to “have a good high note to end on.” And for those who want to continue their musical endeavors, he said, “Hopefully, this is just the beginning.” Reserve tickets for the Winter Choir Concert are $7 each. For information on purchasing tickets, contact Schrimsher at WCHS (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Ticket sales will cover the cost of using the venue, with any additional dollars going back into the WCHS choir program so more singers are given this and other opportunities in the coming months and years, according to Schrimsher.
“The more performances we have,” he said, “the better we get – especially on a stage like this.
