Christmas at Heritage Center

Friday, November 30, 2018 || 7:30 p.m.

In its sixth year, UD’s Fine and Performing Arts Department celebrates the birth of Christ through this annual Advent concert presentation featuring the talents of the UD Concert Choir, Chamber Singers, and Women’s Choir, directed by Kristen Eby, assistant professor of music, and the Ken Kilian Brass Ensemble from Platteville, Wisconsin.  University of Dubuque president, Jeffrey Bullock, will narrate the evening. 

Titled Break Forth, O Beauteous Light: An Evening of Lessons and Carols, the concert will follow the traditional readings heard at the Christmas Eve service at King’s College in Cambridge, England. The narrative correlates directly with choral texts and instrumental pieces chosen to tell the story of Christ’s birth in a seamless performance. Selections will include new arrangements of holiday favorites such as “O Holy Night,” “Mary, Did You Know,” and “We Three Kings.”

Complimentary holiday refreshments and live music from the Ken Kilian Brass Ensemble immediately following the concert.
