STUDENT DRIVEN CHRISTMAS CONCERT

University Singers and audience members will sing carols to raise the Christmas spirit this December.

The University Singers are hosting their concert, Sounds of Christmas, on Dec. 5, 2013 from 8 p.m. to 9 p.m. in Lagerquist Concert Hall on the PLU campus.

The program will include a variety of music styles, Biblical readings from Univesity Pastor Dennis Sepper, organ playing by University Organist Paul Tegels, a candlelit procession, carols sung by the Univeristy Singers and audience sing-along carols.

Much of the evening program was designed by students.  Two student conductors and two student pianists will be involved in the performance.  Student leaders also organized many of the behind the scenes opportunities.

Nathan Frank, conductor, said this was his first year working with the University Singers in this concert.  “I think what makes the evening special is that much of the evening is student driven.”

Tickets cost $8 for general admission, $5 for senior citizens (55+) and PLU Alumni, and is free to the PLU Community, students, and those 18 and under. Tickets are available through the PLU Concierge desk (253-535-7411).
