Innovation choral ensemble to perform Winter Concert

Innovation, Jackson State Community College’s choral ensemble, will perform its winter concert on Monday, November 25. The performance will begin at 6 p.m. in Ayers Auditorium at the McWherter Center on the college’s main campus. The event is free and open to the public.

This year, Innovation will sing a medley from the movie The Nightmare Before Christmas. They will also sing a number of other Christmas selections including Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy and several African spirituals.

Now an annual tradition, the event has made strides to help others by raising funds and awareness for the JSCC Nest (formerly the food pantry). In addition to providing food to students in need, Jackson State’s Nest also provides an emergency relief fund that supports students in need. The Nest also makes other essentials available such as clothing, personal hygiene products, and gas cards.

While admission is free, donations to the JSCC Nest are suggested. Most people attending this event either bring items for the pantry or make a monetary donation.

The Nest serves many students over the course of a year. Anyone can contribute to the food pantry year-round. Contact Student Services at 731-425-8820 to make a donation.
