LSU A Cappella Choir to Host 63rd Annual Candleight Concert Dec. 2 at Union Theater
BATON ROUGE –The internationally acclaimed LSU A Cappella Choir will hold its 63rd annual Candlelight Concert on Sunday, Dec. 2, at 7:30 p.m. in the Union Theater, with a mix of seasonal music that is the perfect way to “sing in the season.”
Under new choral director John Dickson, the concert – titled “Heaven and Earth in Little Space” (taken from the medieval carol, “There is No Rose of Such Virtue”) – will include choral settings from some of the great Christmas literature spanning more than a thousand years and sung in Russian, French, Spanish, Latin and English. Each section of the choral concert will be introduced with various Christmas readings of classic texts and poetry.
Unique to this year’s concert will be the opportunity for the audience to join the choir in singing some of the season’s most traditional carols, accompanied by the LSU Brass Consort. The brass will also accompany the choir in a grand processional.
General admission tickets are $20 and can be purchased online through the LSU School of Music website at http://som.lsu.edu, or by calling the Union Theater box office at 225-578-5128.
