Choral Christmas Concert set for December 8
The Illinois College Music Department will present their annual Choral Christmas Concert, “Glory in the Highest,” on Saturday, December 8, at 7:30 p.m. in Rammelkamp Chapel.

Various choirs will perform Christmas classics and new favorites in a candlelit setting. Choirs surround the audience as voices seem to float down from above in a dramatic presentation for the whole family. Traditional melodies like “Lo, How A Rose E’re Blooming,” “Hark! The Herald Angels Sing” and “Silent Night” mingle with fresh modern arrangements and unique international offerings.

“From ancient chant melodies and beautiful Bach fugue, to Christmas madrigals and African drumming, we’ve even thrown in some Bono and U2,” Director of Choirs Abby Musgrove said. “There’s something for everyone.”

The 75-minute Choral Christmas Concert featuring four choirs, various instrumentalists and candlelit audience carols is free and open to the public.
