  • - A colorful collection of ensembles and musical groups from the Frostburg State University Department of Music will join forces to present their sixth annual Holiday Concert on Sunday, Dec. 11, at 3 p.m. in the Pealer Recital Hall of FSU’s Performing Arts Center.
    The Vocal Jazz Ensemble, Chamber Singers and University Chorale will be conducted by Dr. James Reddan. The ensemble will perform the big band classic “Tuxedo Junction,” made famous by the Glenn Miller Orchestra, as arranged by Kirby Shaw, and the classic English Christmas carol “What Child Is This,” arranged by Darmon Meader.
    The Chamber Singers have selected the popular American song “Hard Times Come Again No More” by Stephen Foster, arranged by Mark Keller, which was a favorite of both sides in the American Civil War; “Dieu! Qui la fait bon regarder” from “Trois Chansons” by Claude Debussy; and “O Magnum Mysterium,” a responsorial chant from the Matins of Christmas, reworked into a contemporary setting by Morten Lauridsen.
    The University Chorale will perform “Glow” by Eric Whitacre, which was commissioned by Disney for its “World of Color – Winter Dreams” show, and “Gaudete,” a medieval Christmas tune arranged by Michael Englehardt.
    The Guitar Ensemble, directed by Patrick Sise, will present “Happy Xmas (War Is Over)” by John Lennon, featuring vocals by Alexa Bashaw. A protest song against the Vietnam War that was released in 1971, “Happy Xmas” has since become a Christmas standard.
    The String Ensemble, directed by Karen Lau, will perform “Air” from “Orchestral Suite No. 3” by Johann Sebastian Bach.
    The Jazz Orchestra, conducted by Dr. Brent Weber, will perform “Blue Christmas” by Billy Hayes and Jay Johnson, adapted by Andy Allen, and “Santa Claus Is Coming to Town” by Haven Gillespie and J. Fred Coots, also adapted by Allen.
    The Wind Ensemble, conducted by Dr. Philip Klickman, will perform “Carol of the Shepherds,” Philip Sparke’s magnificent meditation on a 14th-century carol melody, and “Minor Alterations (Christmas Through the Looking Glass)” by David Lovrien. At the end of the concert, the ensemble and University Chorale will unite for a sing-a-long performance of “A Christmas Festival” by Leroy Anderson.
