MU Benefit Concert GLORIOUS SOUNDS OF THE SEASON Set for This Weekend
As part of Millersville University's Annual Scholarship Benefit Concert program, more than 250 students from all of the university's many instrumental and choral groups will come together to perform a holiday-themed concert, "Glorious Sounds of the Season," open to the public. The concert will be performed twice today, Dec. 6, at 4 p.m. and 7:30 p.m., and on Sunday, Dec. 7, 2:30 p.m. at the Winter Visual and Performing Arts Center of Millersville University, located at 60 West Cottage Avenue, Millersville.
Seventeen instrumental or vocal ensembles, ranging in size from a piano duo to the 80-member University Choir, will do their best to get audiences into the holiday spirit, no matter what tradition they favor. The program offers a wide variety of holiday traditions and musical styles from around the world and will span nearly six centuries-including English and French folk songs, klezmer music from the Eastern European Jewish tradition, the South African hymn, "Siyahamba" (translated from the Zulu language as "We Are Marching"), salsa of Latin America, Big Band jazz and much more.
