Aurora University’s annual Christmas concert goes virtual this year.
The university’s music and theater departments feature students and faculty members in “There’s No Place Like Home for the Holidays”.
The recorded virtual concert will be broadcast on Sunday, December 6th at 12:00 noon at aurora.edu/Christmas.
The concert features readings, soloists, guitar, organ, sing-alongs and a selection of the university’s choral and flute ensembles. The director is Lisa Fredenburgh, head of the music department and director of choir activities.
The concert is part of AU’s Celebrating Arts & Ideas series and can be repeated.
Sarah R. Russe, AU Vice President for Community Relations, said: “Although the holidays may look different this year, our commitment to celebrating the Christmas season and the arts continues in a special way.
“Our theater and music departments will delight you with readings, solos and singing along with students and faculty members who are sure to have gathered in small ensembles.
“At Aurora University, we look forward to the time when we can meet again in person to attend a lecture, listen to a concert or visit an exhibition in the Schingoethe Museum.”
Russe added that the university is working on creating a new series of virtual discussions that will begin in January 2021 and will extend through the spring semester.
