Linn-Benton Community College will present its fall choral concert “Sing for Joy” Thursday, Dec. 5 at 7:30 p.m. in the LBCC Russell Tripp Performance Center, Takena Hall, 6500 Pacific Blvd. SW, Albany.

Conducted by James Reddan, LBCC Choral Activities director, the performance includes the Concert Choir, Re-Choired Element Chamber Choir, the Musical Theater/Opera Workshop, and the vocal a cappella groups Blue Light Special and The Sirens. Penny Bazanele will accompany on piano.

“The fall choral concert will truly be a choral extravaganza, with literally something for everyone,” said Reddan.  “We will present a real choral tour-de-force, celebrating the joy of the season reflected in song from many different cultures and periods!” 

The concert will feature different choral works to celebrate the joy of the season, including: Magnificat Mysticum (Snyder), Weep No More (Childs), In Dulci Jubilo (Culloton), Dúlamán (McGlynn), Nothin’ Gonna Stumble My Feet (Gilpin), The Little Drummer Boy (Hayes), O lux beata trinitas (Matshushita) and many more. 

LBCC’s new Musical Theater/Opera workshop will perform selections from Chicago and Into the Woods, celebrating the festivity of the fall season. The a cappella ensembles will present a wide variety of popular favorites including: Clarity, Telephone, Wonderwall, and You Found Me Turning Tables.

LBCC choir alumni will be invited to come to the stage to perform We Three Kings (Meader), an LBCC tradition. The performance will round out with a performance of the Hallelujah Chorus from Handel’s Messiah.
