Featured favorite songs are “Ding Dong Merrily on High,” “Go Tell It on the Mountain” and “Still, Still, Still.” Less familiar selections including “Chelsea Bridge,” “There is Faint Music” and “An African Celebration,” a combination of three African folk songs, will be performed.

Dr. Christopher Kindle, Music Arts program coordinator and instructor, directs the choirs; Gwen Kappelman is the pianist. C. Grant Maledy, adjunct instrumental instructor, directs the Jazz Runners Band.

The Box Office will open two hours prior to the performances, so tickets may be purchased at the door. Wheelchair seating is available upon request.

There will also be free noontime recitals on Wednesday, December 4, in Stauffacher, room 67. Instrumental and vocal applied music students will present casual performances of works they are preparing as part of their semester coursework.
