The Mansfield University Music Department will present the annual holiday choral concerts in Steadman Theatre on December 4 at 7:30 pm and Dec. 5 at 2:30 pm. More than 110 singers and instrumentalists in the five university choirs: Grace Notes, Steadman Singers, Festival Chorus, Chamber Singers, and the Concert Choir, will take part. Peggy Dettwiler, producer and director, has programmed music from historical classics to popular favorites that celebrate the seasons of Winter, Christmas, and Hanukkah. And the audience will enjoy singing familiar holiday carols with organ accompaniment by Father Edward Erb, Pastor at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Wellsboro.
The theme for the concerts, Sing for Joy, provides the opportunity to present uplifting choral works. Arise, Your Light Has Come by David Danner will close the concert with singers encircling the auditorium.
Tickets will sell to adults for $10 and to seniors, students, and children for $5. Faculty, Staff, and Students with MU ID are admitted free of charge.
