Free and open to the public, the sing will be held at 8 p.m. in the college theatre (Room 1305). There are no auditions, no rehearsals and no audience. Those that attend, sing.

They include soprano Stephanie Mills, a graduate of Parkersburg High School; alto Melissa Life, tenor Thomas Lipsmeyer, and bass Dennis Deem, all graduates of Parkersburg South High School.
The College Chorale will open the sing with a sampler of traditional carols.
