Milligan presents annual community Christmas Concert
MILLIGAN COLLEGE, Tenn. (Nov. 12, 2015) — Audiences will have two opportunities to experience the glorious sounds of the season at the annual Milligan College community Christmas concert on Saturday, Dec. 5, and Sunday, Dec. 6. The concerts are free and open to the public.
On both nights, Milligan’s music area will perform at 7:30 p.m. in the seasonally decorated Mary B. Martin Auditorium in Seeger Chapel. Doors open at 6:30 p.m.
“The annual Christmas concert is a wonderful time for Milligan music students and faculty to give a gift to the community of wonderful music in a beautiful setting,” said Dr. Kellie Brown, chair of Milligan’s Area of Music.
The processional for the concerts was written by Jesse Ayers, a composer who was named “Honored Artist” for the American Prize in 2014—along with only five other composers in the country.
The identical performances will feature choirs, orchestra, brass choir and the organ, as well as a carol sing-along. Both evenings will conclude with a moving candle-lighting and singing of “Silent Night.”
The concerts are free; however, a suggested donation of $5 will be taken to benefit the Milligan music area.
