NIC Christmas concert to feature holiday sing-along
This year’s annual holiday concert at North Idaho College Dec. 9 and 10 will include the traditional holiday songs and the sing-alongs that bring the crowd to its feet each year.
“Sounds of Christmas” will feature several holiday-themed pieces by the NIC Wind Symphony led by Terry Jones. The band will perform “The Eighth Candle: Prayer and Dance for Hanukah,” “Good Swing Wencelas,” a swing version of the traditional carol, “Fantasia on a 13th Century Carol” and “Christmas Legends,” which includes a variety of classic Christmas carols.
The NIC Concert Choir, Madrigal Singers and Jazz Co. jazz choir will focus on a variety of music for all ages, ranging from the Italian Baroque to Christmas classics. Performances will include the Ukrainian carol “Carol of the Bells,” Antonio Vivaldi’s “Gloria,” the 12th century carol “Personent Hodie” and a Spanish Christmas song called “A la nanita nana.”
The NIC choral groups, which are conducted by Max Mendez, will then join forces with the band for the traditional holiday sing-along of well-known Christmas carols with the audience.
“Sounds of Christmas” will be at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 9 and at 2 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 10 in NIC’s Boswell Hall Schuler Auditorium.
