The ensembles of the Choral Department at Wake Forest University will present music for the holiday season at this traditional annual event. The admission charge for this concert will help cover Concert Choir’s travel expenses when the group takes its third international tour to Ireland in March 2014. Tickets will be on sale at the door for $10 for adults and $5 for students. Wake Forest students will be admitted free with ID cards. Anyone wishing to reserve tickets may do so by calling the Music Department Office at 758-5026. The featured selections will be Morten Lauridsen’s O Nata Lux sung by Concert Choir, a new arrangement of Silent Night by Michael Culloton presented by the Collegium Vocal Ensemble, and Benjamin Britten’s challenging setting of The Sycamore Tree performed by the Wake Forest Chamber Choir. The combined ensembles will sing three movements from Britten’s A Ceremony of Carols with harp accompaniment to close the program.
