Great Falls College Community Choir holiday concert slated for Dec. 15
Great Falls College alum Laura Detrick sings the national anthem at commencement. Detrick's original composition, "Exigence," will be featured at the Great Falls College Community Choir's holiday concert on Dec. 15.
GREAT FALLS –The Great Falls College Community Choir will present a fall holiday concert on Thursday, Dec. 15, at 7 p.m. at First Congregational United Church of Christ.
Included on this concert will be the premier of “Exigence,” a composition by graduate, Laura Detrick, and her son, Ryan.
“Exigence” was composed especially for the Great Falls College Community Choir in 2020.
“Just about the time the choir was preparing the piece, we closed due to Covid,” said Cynthia Stevens, director of the choir. “We are really excited to finally showcase this song at our holiday concert.”
In addition to piano accompaniment, “Exigence” contains a part for handbells that will be played by the Cantabelle Ringers, the handbell choir at First Congregational United Church of Christ, under the direction of Dennis Dell.
The choir will also present a piece by local singer/songwriter Molly Wilson. “Autumn is Come” (originally composed for the Great Falls College Children’s Choir in 2016) has been reworked for the adult choir and evokes the sights, sounds and smells of fall in Montana.
“We are excited to present this concert and collaborate with so many local musicians,” Stevens said.
The concert is free and open to the public. A reception will follow in the Fellowship Hall of the First Congregational United Church of Christ.

First Congregational United Church of Christ is at 2900 9th Ave. S.
