‘Silent Night’ is not so silent; APSU presents concert for a good cause

By REBECCA NANNEY | Staff Writer

APSU presents “Silent Night — an Evening of Holiday Music” at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 3, in the concert hall of the Music/Mass Communications building.

Tickets for this event will cost $3 or two canned good items to be donated to Loaves and Fishes.

The concert will contain many different forms of Christmas music, from the classics that people know such as “Hark the Herald Angels Sing,” to less well known works like “In the Bleak Midwinter.”

Music by Christian artists Rosie Thomas and Erin O’Donnell, will be performed as well as many other composers. The concert is also going to be more of a poppy, upbeat performance.

It will open with the classic version of “Silent Night,” but will then end with Rosie Thomas’ version of the song. All of the lyrics are the same, but Thomas changes the actual music, making it a more poppy rendition of the song.

The concert will be showcasing the band, as well as, the vocal stylings of Allison Campbell and David Alford. While Paul Carrol Binkley plays the guitar, Tony Nagy beats the bass and Matt DeVore pounds the drums.

APSU’s music professor, David Steinquest, will also be playing percussion for this performance.

Special guests playing during this performance include Stanley Yates, music professor, Desiree Dolan and the APSU percussion ensemble.

This concert will be one of the many events to attend during the holiday season.

Tickets will be on sale in the APSU music office on Wednesday, Dec. 1. For more information about the concert or buying tickets, contact Norma Jean Smith by calling (931) 221-7818. TAS
