The concert will feature both separate and combined performances from the Lamplighters Concert Choir and the Symphonic Band, and will include festive music such as “Fantasia on Christmas Carols” and “Silent Night.”

According to Dr. Ronda DePriest, director of the Music Program, the concert is a great way to display the broad talents of students in the Department of Fine Arts.

“This concert always brings the full department together at a most enjoyable time of year,” said DePriest. “The audience will hear some pieces that are traditional Christmas-time pieces and some that utilize melodies that are very familiar but are treated in new and interesting ways.”

For more information, contact DePriest at rdepries@waynesburg.edu or call 724-852-3420.
