SALEM, Ore. — Tickets are now on sale in the Willamette University Music office for the annual Christmas In Hudson Hall concert. The concert will be presented on Thursday, December 6th and Friday, December 7th at 7:30 p.m.
This performance has its Willamette roots in the Lessons and Carols service originally created in Oxford, England. We give it a special Willamette flavor by having rhetoric Prof. Jeanne Clark construct a series of seasonal readings to thread together the carols sung by the audience and the special feature selections performed by Male Ensemble Willamette, Voce Femminile , the Chamber Choir and the University Chamber Orchestra. This special performance in the ornately decorated Hudson Hall is a non-commercial presentation of the historical roots of the Christmas season. This long running tradition is seen by many as the official beginning to the holiday season in Salem, and we invite you to take part and be moved by the music of the season.
Doors open at 6:45 p.m. Tickets are $8 (festival seating) for all ages and can be purchased Monday-Friday at the Music Office in the Rogers Music Center, Willamette University or you may charge by phone, 503-370-6255. Tickets will also be available for purchase before the concert beginning at 6:30pm in the music office. Will Call ticket pickup will also begin at 6:30pm.
