The Nicholas County Girls Choir
Closing the end of its 2014 season, the Nicholas County Girls Choir delighted the audience on Friday evening, December 12, 2014 with its “Christmas Street” performance, in the Auditorium, Nicholas County High School, Summersville, West Virginia, USA.
Program selections were:
♪ Happy Birthday Jesus
♪ The Sleigh
♪ Christmas Street
♪ A Gallery Carol
♪ Sleep Well Thou Lovely Heavenly Babe
♪ Deck the Hall
♪ Gabriel’s Message
♪ Hallelujah Christmas
♪ Holiday Dreamin’
♪ Christmas In About Three Minutes
The second and third selections in the listing above were done by a ‘select troupe’ of vocalists, in costume, as “The Gingersnaps.” The final selection is a complex medley of 23 holiday carols, delivered in a total of “about three minutes.” There were capable soloists throughout the program. Choir member, Tori Cutright, served as a guest conductor on the fifth selection. Live piano prelude–and accompaniment throughout the program–was beautifully played by several pianists, including the Director.
A debut performance of the ”Christmas Street” program was held as an ‘After-Thanksgiving’ holiday treat on November 29, 2014 at St. Luke’s United-Methodist Church, Craigsville. Audience reaction was especially warm and sustained.
