The Southeastern Louisiana University Bella Voce, Concert Choir, University Chorus, and Northshore Choral Society will present “And Suddenly… A Jazz Holiday,” an evening of holiday carols in preparation of the holiday season, on Thursday, Nov. 29.

Sponsored by the Department of Music and Performing Arts, the free performance is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. at First Baptist Church, located at 401 W. Morris in Hammond. Director of Choral Activities Alissa Mercurio Rowe will conduct the choirs.

“The concert includes a lovely holiday program with many festive carols that the audience will know,” Rowe said. “We are featuring a number of solos and asking the audience to sing along. It should get everyone in the holiday spirit.”

The concert begins with “The Christmas Song” and also includes “Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas,” “Jingle Bells,” “We Need A Little Christmas,” “White Christmas,” “Infant Holy, Infant Lowly,” “Ding Dong Glory Christmas Rag,” “Away in a Manger,” “Once In Royal David’s City,” “Silent Night,” “We Three Kings,” “In the Bleak Midwinter,” “Personent Hodie,” “Go Tell It On The Mountain,” and “And Suddenly.”

Audience members are invited to sing along to “Angels We Have Heard on High” and “Deck the Halls.”
