For any students who plan to sing in choir or play in band at Concordia, this event is definitely geared toward to you. If you’re like me, though, and this is not something you decide to pursue in college, that’s okay too. It’s a wonderful event to listen to.
Christmas at Concordia is a magical event that is held in the chapel in December each year. The chapel, which is filled to the brim with families and students, is beautifully decorated with Christmas trees and lights, and the Christmas spirit is certainly in the air.
The concert begins with all of the choir students holding candles and streaming into the chapel. Once they surround the entire audience, they begin singing a quiet and meaningful Christmas song. Following this, the concert focuses on switching off from the choir singing to people playing the bells to different groups of the band playing.
For someone who enjoys listening to Christmas music, this is the perfect and most festive way to do so. And for those involved in the performance, this is a wonderful chance to spread the word of God and to have a blast. Every year, I hear great things from the people who are in the concert, because it is such an enjoyable time for them as well.
I love being able to spend a Friday night having a more relaxing time than usual. Being able to support my friends in their hard work is also rewarding, and I know they appreciate having people come to watch their performance.
