On December 8 and 9 at 7:30 p.m. and December 10 at 2:30 p.m. at the Saenger Theater, GBMS students in Pensacola Children’s Chorus (PCC) will perform the 27th annual Christmas on the Coast. This show features many different styles of holiday music sung by the PCC students, from Christmas carols to Hanukkah music and modern to praise music. The older students perform advanced choreography along with the music. By simply purchasing tickets (almost sold out) at the Saenger Theater Box Office or online at Ticketmaster for $22-38 dollars, people of all ages can enjoy the holiday spirit of Christmas on the Coast 

Since September, about 230 PCC students in school grades three through 12 have been rehearsing for up to two hours each week. PCC prepares to give it their all for the performance by dancing, singing, and practicing clear pronunciation. To become a part of the chorus and thus participate in Christmas on the Coast, the students audition on their singing and memory skills at the start of the season for placement in one of the seven choirs of the chorus. (Choristers, Festival, Ensemble, Concert, Echo, Ambassadors, and Young Singers.) To join PCC for the last half of the season, auditions will be held December 15.  

14 GBMS students are part of PCC, one of whom is Melissa Cruse, 7th grade. Being in the Ensemble and Concert choirs, she loves the “experience of being onstage.” She states that with the performance being so “Christmassy,” you can’t leave without feeling the true spirit of the holidays. Melissa also is excited about the mystery guest, but we’ll have to leave it at that. The other GBMS students performing this year are:

  • Lauren Hitchcock, 7th grade
  • Madeline Ruffin, 8th grade
  • Jack Anderson, 8th grade
  • Taylor Dykes, 8th grade
  • Deanna Harwell, 8th grade
  • Ellie Caldwell, 6th grade
  • Sydney Ferris, 6th grade
  • Kendal Peat, 6th grade
  • Brooke Bordelon, 6th grade
  • Anna Stersic, 6th grade
  • Sydney Bell, 6th grade
  • Augustina Delpp, 6th grade
  • Zahra Dejoubner, 6th grade

“Their energy provides me with such great joy, and seeing their smiling faces on stage reminds me that I am really fortunate to have a job that I love working with talented young musicians whom I adore,” PCC Artistic Director Alex Gartner stated. PCC produces Christmas on the Coast to give back to the supportive community of Pensacola. Christmas on the Coast is a dazzling show radiating the joy of the holiday season. It is perfect for the whole family to enjoy! Performing GBMS students are thrilled to represent Gulf Breeze, and look forward to the show.
