Bellevue Community Chorus, TSU Choir scheduled to perform in Bellevue

Saturday, December 5th, will be the 4th Annual Bellevue Holiday Market.  Located at Western Hills Church (7565 Charlotte Pike), the market will feature over 45 local artisans and vendors. The event will run from 8am to 3pm. This year, the marketplace will feature live performances from the Bellevue Community Chorus, TSU Choir, and Dance in Bloom.

Performance Times:

Bellevue Community Chorus – 10 am
Under the direction of Director Dr. Mark Crawford, the Bellevue Community Chorus will sing traditional Christmas and holiday songs.  The group is comprised of community volunteers and was founded in February 2007. Additional scheduled performances include an annual seasonal Christmas performance at Bellevue Church of Christ on December 13th, along with a performance at the Biltmore Mansion in Asheville, NC, on December 28th.

TSU University Choir – 11 am
The Tennessee State University Choir is led by Dr. Susan Kelly. Below is additional information from the TSU website:

The Tennessee State University Choir comes from a long and respected tradition of choral singing among predominantly African-American colleges and universities. Choral singing has been a major part of Tennessee State University for over 50 years. In 1989 the University Choir participated in a competitive choral festival in Cincinnati, Ohio winning first place. They participated in the Chicago Mid-West Choral Festival in 1990 and received a superior rating. In 1996 and 2002 the choir participated in the “Festival of Spirituals” at Oakwood College in Huntsville, Alabama, and performed on national television backing Jennifer Hudson at the 2010 Kennedy Center Honors.

Most of the singers in the University Choir are from disciplines other than music. The ensembles take pride in announcing that they perform a wide variety of choral literature, from the Renaissance to spirituals. It is their hope that this will offer their audiences a rich musical experience to cherish and remember

Dance in Bloom – 1:30 pm
Always a favorite of the Bellevue Holiday Market, a group from Dance in Bloom will be making their third appearance for a delightful performance!


Located in the Bellevue area, Dance in Bloom teaches proper dance technique in a fun and upbeat environment. We stress the importance of learning fundamentals, proper form, and having fun. We feel there is no point in dancing if it isn’t fun!

Our 3,000 sq ft facility hosts classes in ballet, pointe, tap, jazz, hip-hop, modern, lyrical, contemporary, and acrobatics/tumbling for ages 2 and up (of all backgrounds, and abilities). A variety of class times are offered to accommodate most family schedules. The studio is also available for rental for private instruction and/or rehearsals.
