Cedarville, Ohio-On Sunday, Dec. 3 at 6 p.m., Cedarville University will host its seventh annual Community Christmas Concert filled with a variety of talents in celebration of the holiday season. Coordinated by Mike DiCuirci, a professor of music at Cedarville University, the concert will be held in the Jeremiah Chapel of the Dixon Ministry Center.

The evening will include performances by University music ensembles and faculty, including the Cedarville University Jazz Band, Women’s Choir, Brass Choir, Concert Chorale, Harp Ensemble, and Symphonic Band. Special features of the program will be carols by the audience and the reading of the Christmas story by Professor Edward Spencer. The program will conclude with everyone singing the Hallelujah Chorus from Handel’s MESSIAH.

The media sponsor, CDR Radio, The PATH®, invites all attendees to participate in this year’s Angel Tree® gift drop-off. At the concert, participants can donate new, unwrapped toys for children ages infant to 16 years. There is a specific need for gifts oriented to older children. These gifts will then be delivered to the children of prison inmates on behalf of their incarcerated parents. Angel Tree® is a ministry of Prison Fellowship.

Admission is free and open to the public. For more information, contact the Cedarville University Department of Music and Art at 937-766-7728.
