The West Shore Community College Performing Arts Series, in collaboration with Radiant Church, will present “A WSCC Holiday Rock Spectacular,” on December 10 at 6:30 p.m. at Radiant Church in Ludington. The show will have musicians from the Verve Pipe, Brena, local favorites Groove 101, Edgar Struble, Kevin DePree, Chloe Kimes and many more! This is an opportunity to ring in the holiday season with a powerful musical production featuring the music of The Trans-Siberian Orchestra, For King and Country, Stevie Wonder, Dolly Parton, and U2 to name a few.
“The concept for this show was a result of last year’s Living Room Series and a conversation with our WSCC Production Manager Adam Knudsen. Many of the 14 musicians that will perform were on our Living Room Series and it was my goal to thank them by featuring everyone in a live show. Each musician on stage I have had the opportunity to perform music professionally with and this will be a homecoming,” says Ted Malt, director of performing arts and professor of music studies.
Initial plans were for 2 shows. Due to scheduling changes, the 9 p.m. show will not take place.
Edgar Struble, producer and artist in residence at WSCC says, “It’s always a joy for me to participate in these WSCC Holiday events, and this year Ted and Adam have come up with something unique, featuring great singers and musicians from the area and beyond, playing holiday music that’s challenging and fun! I’m so looking forward to getting together with these talented folks, some of whom I’ve only met on a Zoom call, and putting together a memorable concert!”
Some WSCC Alumni will be on the stage, including Craig Avery and Chloe Kimes. Kimes holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Music Business and Songwriting from Middle Tennessee State University. She states “Not only am I excited to perform, but can’t wait to share the stage with so many local legends. This year’s Holiday Rock Spectacular is going to be a wonderful night!”
Malt adds, “We are holding this event at Radiant Church in Ludington under the leadership of Pastor Jerry Theis. We consider Jerry and his team part of our team and I am truly excited to continue to collaborate enhance programming in the future.”
