JCJC celebrates "A Jingle Jazz Christmas"

(The following is a press release submitted to WDAM7 by JCJC.)

ELLISVILLE –The Jones County Junior College Fine Arts Department is inviting the public to start the holidays with, "A Jingle Jazz Christmas," featuring the JC Jazz and JC Voices.  The evening of jazzy Christmas tunes will be Thursday, December 3, at 7 p.m. in the Bobby Shows Exhibit Hall in the Ronald E. Whitehead Advanced Technology Center, located in the Howard Technology Park in Ellisville. There's one twist to this holiday gathering. The students and faculty of the JCJC Fine Arts Department request that you bring one new unwrapped toy for the Salvation Army's "Angel Tree" program as your admission to the concert. Toys, including sports equipment, board games and plush animals will be given to a child in our area this Christmas.  
 
"We are thrilled to partner with the local branch of the Salvation Army to support the Angel Tree Program. Many of our students are on scholarship and they look forward to performances like this one where they can give back to the community and showcase their talent," said Dr. Susan Smith, JCJC Fine Arts Department Chair.
 
In return for your donation, Jones music students will provide an evening of beautiful holiday favorites like, "O Holy Night," "Hark the Herald Angels Sing," and big band Christmas favorites performed by JC Jazz, under the direction of Jeff Cannon. The audience will also be serenaded by the JCJC select vocal ensemble, JC Voices, under the direction of Dr. Susan Smith and accompanied by Dr. Victoria Johnson. JC Voices will sing several selections with JC Jazz, including "Gettin' in the Mood for Christmas," and the classic, "We Need a Little Christmas." The ensemble will also share popular tunes like "The Christmas Song," "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas," "Jingle Bells," and several cherished sacred selections.
 
The Angel Tree began in Lynchburg, Virginia in 1979 and provided a way for the local citizens to be personally involved in sharing with those less fortunate in their community.  The Jones County Junior College Fine Arts Department is pleased to partner with the Salvation Army this year in providing a bit of Christmas cheer for "angels" in the Pine Belt.  Join us for an evening of jazz and giving on December 3, 2015 at 7 p.m.  For more information, call the Fine Arts office at 601-477-4094 or follow JCJC Fine Arts on Facebook and Twitter.
