The Paris Junior College Chamber Singers will present a unique twist to their annual Christmas concert at 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 1, at the First United Methodist Church located at 322 Lamar Avenue, according to Choral Director Pat Fowzer.

“It was a joy to look for outstanding Christmas arrangements that feature different instruments to accompany each selection for ‘An Instrumental Christmas,’” said Fowzer.

Several of the Chamber Singers members are accomplished instrumentalists as well as singers. During the performance flutist Val Schmidt, clarinetist Justin Hughes, violinist Gloria Cooper and recently named All State trumpet player Elizabeth Silva will be featured.

Accompanist Linda Flanary will be joined by Thomas Belew at the piano for four-hand piano arrangements on two of the selections. Paris High School percussion instructor Shawn Wellman, Stone Middle School Band Director and oboist Rhonda Morris and PJC math instructor and recorder specialist John Fornof will also be among those sharing their instrumental expertist.

Favorite Christmas selections include “Gesu Bambino,” “I Saw Three Ships Come Sailing In,” “O Come, O Come Emmanuel,” “Ave Maria,” and “God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen.”

Voice students Trent Little, Glenn Pruitt, Jordan Thielman, Hillary Evans, Jenilyn Fowzer, Sattriona Nyachwaya, Josh Mooneyham and Clarissa Christensen will present solo and duet selections.

The Chamber Singers have been honored over the years with performances at the Mormon Tabernacle, Disney World, the Texas Ranger and Frisco Rough Rider ballparks, Dallas Mavericks’ and San Antonio Spurs’ games and have presented concerts in the State Capitol rotunda as well as the foyer of the Morton Meyerson Symphony Center in Dallas.

The Chamber Singers believe that this Christmas concert is going to be one of their finest and invite the public to join them in this joyful opening of the Christmas season. There is no admission charge for the concert.
