(Joplin, MO) – The Missouri Southern State University (MSSU) Choral Society will perform its annual Winter Concert on Sunday, December 10, 2023, at 3:00 pm at First Community Church, 2007 E 15th Street in Joplin.

Choral Society Conductor Melissa Belk, and accompanist Clint Newby, will lead the community-based, 60+ member Choral Society and will present its holiday program with music that will appeal to people of all ages.

The concert includes several favorite holiday works from “O Holy Night” to “Jingle Bells” (with a twist!) to “Joy to the World” and the grandeur of Benjamin Britten’s arrangement of “Personent Hodie,” among other selections.

A special addition this year includes a bell choir accompanying the chorus and playing additional music.

The event is free, and donations will be gratefully accepted.
