While music director at Morley College, Holst dedicated “Christmas Day” to the music students. It was first performed on Jan. 28, 1911. The piece is composed of four familiar Christmas carols with “God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen” and “The First Noel” as the most prominent.
The chorale also will perform other holiday music, including “Angels We Have Heard on High,” “Silent Night,” an early American hymn entitled “Brightest and Best,” along with such favorites as “Sleigh Ride” and Winter Wonderland.”
Internationally acclaimed organist, Ron Wyatt, the chorale’s accompanist, also will be featured in a special musical presentation on the pipe organ.
The chorale is composed of singers from the greater Galveston area and is open to individuals who are interested in singing and being a part of an outstanding choral organization.

Galveston College Theatre Presents ‘No-Hole Holiday’

This holiday season, Galveston College Theatre department will present the musical comedy, “The No Hole Holiday,” with book and lyrics by Stan Gill and music by Cindy Bright and Stan Gill.

An upwardly mobile elf, frustrated Halloween goblins, industrious hole-making gnomes, schmoozy politicians and Santa populate this charming and zany modern fairy tale.

It is still a month before the holidays and preparations are gearing up.  “The Holiday World”, Santa says, “is a strange and unusual place.”  Axel the Elf has been promoted to Santa’s personal staff, however, instead of something glamourous like tinsel or music, he is put in charge of buying holes.  Santa sends Axel to see Mr. Pistachio, the Commissioner of Stuff, to make the deal, but sends him with a warning.  There are two Goblins called the Grump Sisters, who are jealous that their holiday, Halloween, lasts only a day, while Santa’s festivities are celebrated for a month.  Mr. Pistachio takes Axel to meet Rowley and Jinx, the two gnomes who run the Hole Factory, so he may see how important his new job is.  Axel begins to get the idea and his attitude changes about the importance of his new job, just in time for the Grumps to attempt to sabotage the Hole Factory and ruin everyone’s holiday.  Will the Grump Sisters succeed or will Santa, Axel, Rowley, Jinx and Mr. Pistachio save the holidays?

Company Members include Eva Arita, Alyssa Gudz, Jade Killebrew, Daniel Maxey, Andrea Parson, Kristopher Prodoehl, Eric Scales, Destiny Shute, Wrath Sorrell and Fallon Smith.

Show dates and times for “The No-Hole Holiday” are Thursday, Nov. 15, at 7:30 p.m., Friday, Nov. 16, at 2:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. and Saturday, Nov. 17, at 2:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.
