Matthew Stultz Nov 27, 2019

The Waynesburg University Music Program will host its annual Christmas Concert Saturday, Dec. 7, at 7:30 p.m. in Roberts Chapel. Admission is free, and the public is cordially invited to attend.

The concert will feature both the University’s Lamplighters Concert Choir, under the direction of Melanie Catana, assistant professor of vocal music, and the Symphonic Band, under the direction of Dr. Ronda DePriest, professor of instrumental music and director of the Music Program.

The music to be performed will feature a mixture of traditional and sacred music related to Christmas. The band’s selections, specifically, will focus on the star of Bethlehem.

“The pieces were chosen to bring comfort for the season shared by family and friends,” said DePriest.

Both ensembles will combine for the final piece, which will include many well-loved carols from around the world.

“This concert is sure to enchant and begin a magical, musical holiday season,” added DePriest.
