W&L Offers Two Evenings of Seasonal Holiday Music
Come and kick-off the holiday season with the W&L Men’s Glee Club, Cantatrici (W&L women’s choir), the University Wind Ensemble, String Ensemble and the W&L Swing for a family-friendly evening of seasonal holiday music. Two identical concerts will be presented, on Monday, Dec. 5 and Tuesday, Dec. 6, at 7 p.m. in Wilson Concert Hall in the Lenfest Center at Washington and Lee.
The earlier start time is intended to allow families to come and hear the festive music. Tickets are free but required and may be picked up at the Lenfest Box Office. Due to the large performer setup, seating will be limited.
The concert will open with pieces from Chanticleer’s Christmas Spiritual Medley and then move immediately to favorites such as Carol of the Bell, The First Nowell and Sleigh Ride performed around the audience by Cantatrici and the W&L Swing.
The University String and Wind Ensembles will close the concert with energetic renditions of The Eighth Candle and Sleigh Ride before closing with Leroy Anderson’s classic A Christmas Festival that will include a festival audience sing-along. It is sure to be a great evening of joyous music for the entire family.
