Feast of Carols Concert Scheduled for December 8

Feast of Carols 2018

Students from the Arkansas Tech University Department of Music will perform the 18th Feast of Carols concert at 5 p.m. on Sunday, Dec. 8, at First United Methodist Church in Russellville.

Admission to the performance will be free and open to the public.

Dr. Christopher Harris, assistant professor of music, serves as director of choirs at Arkansas Tech.

“The program is an hour long,” said Harris. “The first half is always seasonal music about winter and the historic story of Christ. That’s been a big source of inspiration for composers, so often times there is music that has been written and can really only be performed during that time of year. The second half is completely what we have come to expect from Christmas. You’ll get some carols and some special treats with some instrumentalists and some jazzy things happening. You’ll hear songs you are familiar with and can almost sing along with.”

A meal will be served at the church following the concert. Meal tickets are $20 for adults and available by sending e-mail to choir.office@atu.edu.
