Music department concerts are free and open to the public.
The Department of Music at Lafayette College presents its annual Holiday Season Concert on Saturday, Dec. 7 at 8 p.m. in the Williams Center for the Arts.
This year’s joint concert features performances by Lafayette’s Percussion Ensemble, under the direction of Professor J. Larry Stockton, and the Lafayette Concert Choir and Chamber Singers, led by Jennifer Kelly, associate professor of music and director of choral activities. The program offers a signature blend of world music and contemporary compositions along with some holiday favorites. A special highlight will be the introduction of the new Zimbabwean-style bass marimba. Join us in the lobby once again after the concert for cookies and cider accompanied by some of your favorite carols.
The concert is free, but tickets are required. For tickets, please call the Williams Center Box Office at (610) 330-5009 weekdays between the hours of noon to 2 p.m. and 4 to 5 p.m.
