Kent State Chorale to Perform "Carols and Confections" in Place of "Yuletide Feaste" This YearPosted Nov. 3, 2011
The Kent State University Chorale will perform an array of holiday songs during "Carols and Confections" at 2 p.m. on Sat., Dec. 3 in University Auditorium in Cartwright Hall on Terrace Drive in Kent. Immediately following the concert, guests will be welcome to a variety of holiday treats and beverages.
The event will serve as a fundraiser for the Chorale and will include an eclectic song list. Guests can expect to hear a wide variety of seasonal melodies ranging from the Gregorian chant to Renaissance songs and from contemporary carol arrangements to Hanukkah songs.
A long-standing "Yuletide Feaste" tradition will take a break to allow "Carols and Confections" to debut. The "Yuletide Feaste" is a medieval themed dinner complete with a queen, live medieval entertainment and the voices of the Kent State Chorale. Director, Scott MacPherson, said the "Yuletide Feaste" will be "better than ever" when it returns next year.
Tickets are $12 adults / $10 seniors / $5 students with valid ID or for children under 18 years old. Call 330-672-2172 for tickets, or purchase at the door, cash or check only.
The Kent State University Chorale is made up of students across all majors who dedicate themselves to music and work towards refining their talents. Each year the choral performs on campus and throughout the region, state and even toured Italy for eleven days performing in Florence, Rome, Venice and Greve. A person's level of involvement is dependent upon one's interest, time schedule and musical and vocal maturity.
