Join with friends, family, and neighbors for an evening of music and majesty. Professor of English Dr. Edward Spencer will read the Christmas story and the audience will be invited to sing a selection of favorite Christmas carols.

Music faculty Charles Pagnard, Beth Cram Porter, and John Mortensen will share their talents in vocal and instrumental music. The evening will end by singing the “Hallelujah Chorus” from Handel’s Messiah.

Christmas is also about giving. The media sponsor for the evening, CDR Radio, The PATH® encourages attendees to participate in Project Angel Tree®, a ministry of Prison Fellowship. Angel Tree® seeks to spread love and joy during the Christmas season by giving donated gifts to children who have a parent in prison. Concert goers can donate new, unwrapped presents ranging from $10-15 for children up to 16 years. There is a specific need for gifts for older children.
