Welcome the Christmas season with the University Choir, University Singers, Madrigal Singers, Women’s Chorale and Matador Singers as they present their annual concert of familiar carols.
The University Choir, University Singers, Madrigal Singers, Women’s Chorale and Matador Singers will combine their talents in a variety of well-known Christmas melodies. The ensembles also will welcome as special guests members of the West Texas Children’s Chorus conducted and founded by School of Music faculty member Susan Brumfield.
Faculty members John Hollins and Sigurd Ogaard will provide a prelude and accompaniment on the 81-rank Holtkamp Organ (consisting of 4,271 pipes.) The university’s new director of choral activities, Richard Bjella, will spearhead the event, along with faculty conductors Carolyn Cruse, Karl Dent, John Hollins and graduate assistant conductors Justin Duncan, Kristi MacMullen, Ian Aiperspach and Eric Posada.
