FHSU's Fort Hays Singers to present "Holiday Dessert Show"

 

12/11/17

HAYS, Kan. – Fort Hays State University’s Fort Hays Singers will present a “Holiday Dessert Show” from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 14, and Friday, Dec. 15, and from 2 to 3:30 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 17, at the First United Methodist Church in Hays.

The show will feature the Fort Hays Singers singing Christmas carols from various countries. Desserts will be served to guests between sets of music.

“The singers will be in festive costumes and serve as waiters, delivering Austrian chocolates, German kuchen, English scones and others to match the carols,” said Dr. Terry Crull, associate professor of music and theatre and conductor.

Afterward, the Fort Hays Singers will perform a short, 30-minute concert in the church’s sanctuary starting at 7:30 p.m. on Dec. 14 and 15, and 3 p.m. on Dec. 17.

“If you wish, you may skip the desserts and simply join us for the concert to enjoy the songs,” said Crull.

Lower level dining hall admission is $20. Other donations will also be accepted.

Donations will serve as the major fundraiser for the Fort Hays Singers' June 2018 trip to Salzburg, Austria, where they will perform Mozart’s “Coronation Mass” in the Salzburg Cathedral, where Mozart was baptized.

All donations will go directly to the 20 members of the Fort Hays Singers to help pay for the trip
