A mix of traditional favorites and soul-stirring songs of the season will be presented by the Conway Men’s Chorus at its 15th annual Christmas appearance. The concert will be at Reynolds Performance Hall on the campus of the University of Central Arkansas at 7 p.m. on Dec. 4. Doors will open at 6:30. Admission is free, as is the parking on the north, west and south of Reynolds.
CMC is under the direction of Sam Huskey, choral director with the Conway Public Schools. Pianist is Paul Bradley, and assistant directors are Dustin Summey and Dr. Greg Murry.
The 50-plus group, organized in 1998, includes men of all walks of life who have an intense interest in music. Two concerts annually, one in spring and one during the Christmas season, are presented as gifts to the community.
Some of the music to be performed will include "Silent Night, Silent World," "All Is Well," "The Christmas Song," "You’re a Mean One, Mr. Grinch," "O Holy Night," "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas," and many more. A sing-along with the audience is also planned.
Opening the program will be guest performers "Smooth Reflections." This five-member combo from Conway plays music from jazz to blues to rock-n-roll. Members include Pat Hasty on trumpet, Ron Barnett on saxophone, John Kuster on drums, Joe Buddenberg on guitar and David Reese on bass.
