Nov. 26, 2007

KALAMAZOO--Western Michigan University presents the annual holiday favorite, "Choral Christmas," featuring all four of its traditional choral ensembles, at 4 and 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 1, at the First Presbyterian Church in Kalamazoo.

General admission tickets to the performance are $10. They may be purchased at the door or in advance through the Miller Auditorium Ticket Office at (269) 387-2300, toll free at (800) 228-9858, or online at millerauditorium.com.

The famous Christmas Eve concerts at the King's College Chapel in Cambridge, England, are the inspiration for this choral offering, which showcases the talents of the WMU Collegiate Singers, University Chorale, Men's Ensemble and all-women chorus, Cantus Femina. Faculty guest artist Ken Prewitt, tenor, will present "O Holy Night" with organist Karl Schrock. Many of the seasons' most popular carols will be performed with brass and organ. The program includes works by Poulenc, Howells, Mendelssohn and more.
