‘Monarch Tidings’ Christmas Concert Set For Tuesday

John Marshall High School’s Music Department is starting a new holiday tradition this year by presenting a combined Christmas concert. The inaugural “Monarch Tidings” hits the stage at 6 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 12, at the John Marshall Center for Performing Arts.

This student-produced, one-nigh-only event will feature selections from a combination of ensembles including Concert Band, Steel Band, Concert Choir, Monarch Choir, Chamber Orchestra, String Orchestra and Symphony Orchestra. WJMH media students Serena Smith and Luke Utt will host the show.  

Festive tunes such as “Carols from the British Isles” and “Winter Solstice” along with well-known favorites “The Christmas Song,” “Oh Holy Night” and “It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year” will deck the halls of the center with Christmas cheer.

WJMH media will record the entire concert. The production will be shown on WLUTV, West Liberty University’s TV station on Comcast channel 14, around Christmastime. DVDs of the production will be available for purchase.

The holiday concert is open to the public and an admission fee will be charged at the door.
