Fine arts programs showcasing
With the holiday season dawning, Co-Lin’s Fine Arts Division is showcasing the diverse creative activities of its students.
On November 15, it brought the varied components of the program together in its annual Spectacular at the Ewing Administration Building. A sampling of everything that comes out of the Division’s learning and practical activities was featured
On the music side in the free public event, the Division’s choir, marching band and Sojourners ensemble will perform in concert in Rae Auditorium. The works of students in the visual arts will be on display in the lobby and halls at Ewing.
This year, historic numbers have participated in the marching band and choir. Overlapping participation of students in the two primary musical programs of the college spurred the growth of both of them, with band reaching a membership of 147 and the choir, 47 – the largest for each.
The Spectacular follows a free choral production of Charles Dicken’s Christmas Carol performed by choir this past Saturday at Stewart Auditorium in the Fine Arts Building.
Throughout the holiday season, the marching band will also participate in Christmas parades throughout the area:
Mendenhall. November 29. Evening.
Bude. December 1. Afternoon.
Brookhaven. December 1. Evening.
Wesson. December 2. Evening.
New Hebron. December 3.
