Who: Weber State University Alumni Association
What: WSU Alumni Singers Concert
When: Monday, 13 December 2010, 7:00 pm
Where: Holy Family Catholic Church at 1100East 5550 South in Ogden

Weber State University Alumni Association presents the WSU Alumni Singers, directed by Evelyn Harris, in concert, Monday, December 13, 7:00 pm, at the Holy Family Catholic Church at 1100East 5550 South in Ogden. This is a free performance but donations of food and money will be gratefully accepted to assist local Sub for Santa families in need.

A special feature of the concert this year is the addition of the Mount Ogden Brass Quintet. They will play pre-concert Christmas Carols from 6:30 to 7:00 P.M. as the audience is being seated. The brass players are Rod Rippon, trumpet; David Cox, trumpet; Bill Griffith, trombone; Steven Carter, horn; and Paul Hathcock, tuba. Then they will join the choir in a “Trilogy for Christmas.” Brett Patterson, the organist for the Holy Family Catholic Church, will be at the organ on this piece.

The concert will be ideal family entertainment including “O Come, O Come, Emmanuel”, “Fum, Fum, Fum”, “Up on the Housetop”. “Baby, Is Cold Outside”, and “Pat-a-pan”. There will be a song by the men and one by the ladies of the choir. The concert also features special numbers by members of the choir.

Evelyn said she is grateful to be doing what she does. “I work with a terrific group of people that love to sing and the music we are doing is such a pleasure to perform. This is a beautiful concert but it is all for the benefit of other people. It is a thrill to be able to help people at Christmas and share the joy!”

Weber State Singers was an active performing group at Weber State University, with Evelyn Harris directing the group for seventeen years. When she retired they also retired the group, which was then without a director. The members had a strong desire to keep the Singers alive and did so through the auspices of the WSU Alumni Office. The current group is comprised of former WSU Singers as well as Evelyn Harris’ vocal students.
