‘Winter Tapestry’ concert Dec. 11



Montcalm Community College’s Alumni & Friends Choir performs its “Winter Tapestry” concert Dec. 11 at 3 p.m. in the gymnasium in the Activities Building on the college’s Sidney campus. Admission is free.

“We will have a little bit of everything to appeal to our audience,” said Choir Director Val Vander Mark.

The choir will perform old favorite winter songs like “White Christmas,” “Sleigh Ride” and “Winter Wonderland,” and newer favorites such as “You’re a Mean One, Mr. Grinch,” “Santa Baby” and “Believe” from the film “Polar Express.”

“We will also be invoking Christmases of the 1950s with a medley of Alfred Burt carols and ‘Santa Baby,’” Vander Mark said.

“There are a few classical numbers sprinkled in, as well as a traditional spiritual, a comical version of the ‘Twelve Days of Christmas,’ and, just for good measure, an                      audience sing-along of traditional Christmas carols,” she added.

MCC’s Alumni & Friends Choir has more than 40 members of various ages from the surrounding areas, including Saranac, Alma and Grand Rapids. Accompanying the choir will be instrumentalists Lori and Leigh Engelbrecht, Karen Maxfield and Jean Hudson, as well as pianists Janis Rohn and Chris Schut.
