CCU choirs, Guitar Ensemble present 17th annual holiday concert
Terri Sinclair, CCU associate professor of music and director of choral activities, will direct the Concert and Chamber Choirs, and Daniel Hull, CCU lecturer of music, will direct the Guitar Ensemble.
In addition to classical selections by Handel and Scarlatti, the program includes familiar holiday carols, contemporary seasonal songs and an audience sing-along.
“The music will be a blend of classical selections that affirm the value of music in our lives and holiday selections to get the audience in the spirit of the season,” said Sinclair.
The event also includes a collection for the Catholic Charities Christmas Assistance Program; attendees are invited to bring a toy for donation to a child in need.
