In addition to Panola College musicians, Christmas in Carthage will feature the Gary Junior High School Choir, the Carthage High School Bulldog Belles, and student dancers from Rowe Performing Arts.

Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for children and students. Panola Family (faculty, staff and students) will be admitted free.

“Christmas in Carthage is a great way to wrap up the semester and get into the holiday spirit,” said Sandra Bauer, director of vocal music at Panola College. “We are so appreciative of our sponsors including First State Bank & Trust Co., Bauer Furniture, First United Methodist Church, First Baptist Church, Central Baptist Church, Pippen Motor Company, Michael and Sara Isbell, and Kay and Dwaine Hubbard.”

Christmas in Carthage is appropriate for the entire family, according to Dwaine Hubbard, director of instrumental music at Panola College. “We hope everyone will come out and join us on December 4 at the Civic Center to enjoy Christmas in Carthage,” he said.
