The Waynesburg University Department of Fine Arts and Music Program will present their annual Christmas concert, “A Concert of Carols,” Saturday, Dec. 12, at 7:30 p.m. in Roberts Chapel. Doors open at 7 p.m. Admission is free, and the public is cordially invited to attend. There is no reserved seating.
The Waynesburg University Lamplighters Concert Choir and Symphonic Band as well as several Greene County high school instrumentalists will perform arrangements of works such as “Amen, Go Tell It,” “O Holy Night,” “Three Noels” and “We Wish You a Merry Christmas.” Edward Powers, professor of theatre at Waynesburg University, will present a poetry reading as well.
“Most of the pieces chosen for this concert use Christmas carols from all types of musical traditions,” said Ronda DePriest, associate professor of instrumental music and director of the music program. “Educationally speaking, a knowledge of the history of carols is needed to develop a sense of the breadth of humanity’s response to the Christmas season throughout the ages and around the world.”
Following the concert, the public is invited to visit the students and faculty at a reception in the Marsh Center.
