There's no place like Holmes, especially at Christmas!
Carols of Christmas, an annual festive concert on the Goodman Campus, has become an anticipated mainstay at Holmes Community College. Featuring students and faculty from the Choral, Vocal, Piano, and Guitar Divisions of the Fine Arts Department, this inspirational night is the musical highlight of the Christmas season. Performing ensembles include the Holmes Concert Chorale; the Coachmen Singers, our a cappella pop group; and The Holmes Connection! showchoir, as well as vocal soloists, piano spotlights, and other special musical guests.
Favorite holiday classics from various eras and styles are intermingled with specially prepared newer works. From the reverent and sweet, to the catchy and upbeat, the audience is blessed with an aural and visual treat. With an occasional visit from Santa himself, there are familiar sights and sounds for all ages to enjoy.
Paired with this year's concert is an annual Holiday Bake Sale Fundraiser in the McDaniel Hall Lobby. Whole cakes, pies, baked goods, casseroles, and cookies by the dozen will be sold. Some items will be fresh and some already frozen, ready to heat and serve at Christmas parties or family gatherings. Prices range from $10-$25. One (1) free admission to the concert will be given with each item purchased from the Bake Sale.
Come join us for a delightful night of traditional and contemporary sounds of the season!
