The annual Glenville State College Choir and Chamber Singers Holiday Concert is scheduled for 7 p.m. Nov. 27at Sand Fork Baptist Church in Sand Fork, Gilmer County.

The evening will feature Christmas carols written from the 17th century until the 20th century as well as readings from students, faculty and staff, including GSC President Peter Barr.

"I want to give our students many different experiences in choral music, and this one is from the long tradition of wonderful choral music in England," said GSC Choir Director Teresa Dody. "The church setting is important as we are trying to do this type of concert as close to the original lessons and carols as possible. I encourage everyone to come and experience a wonderful night of Christmas music, new and old,"

The event is free and open to the public. Donations will be accepted to raise funds for GSC students to perform with the West Virginia State Collegiate Honor Choir in February in Charleston.
