Classic Christmas to be Livestreamed

Lee University’s School of Music will present its 29th annual “A Classic Christmas” on Sunday, Dec. 2, at 3 p.m. in the Conn Center.

"Classic Christmas 2018 will be an enjoyable afternoon for the community to begin the Christmas season,” said Dr. Joshua Cheney, assistant professor of choral music. “There will be renditions of some old holiday favorites like ‘Carol of the Bells,’ ‘Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas,’ ‘White Christmas,’ and ‘It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year.’”

Viewers can also expect a variety of familiar carols, such as “Angels We Have Heard on High,” “The First Noel,” “Hark the Herald Angels Sing,” “O Come, All Ye Faithful,” and “Silent Night.”

This year’s concert will feature a variety of Lee ensembles including Choral Union, directed by Cheney; Chorale, directed by Dr. William Green; Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Artist-in-Residence Robert Bernhardt; and Handbell Choir, conducted by Laud Vaught.

The award-winning Chattanooga Girls’ Choir, directed by Joshua Golden, will perform as special guests for the evening.

“We are also overjoyed that Robert Bernhardt will be with us to lead a stirring medley of heartwarming tunes from The Polar Express,” said Cheney. “This year's Classic Christmas promises to provide something magical for all who want to experience the spirit of Christmas!"

Tickets are sold out, but interested parties may call the Dixon Center Box Office at (423) 614-8343 to be placed on a waiting list for any tickets that become available. The performance will also be available for livestream viewing.
