CSB/SJU Music Department: Christmas with Saint Ben's & Saint John's
December 3, 2021 - December 4, 2021
Abbey and University Church, SJU
The time-honored tradition of Christmas with Saint Ben’s & Saint John’s (formerly Christmas at Saint John’s) returns with two on-campus performances in the Abbey and University Church at Saint John’s University. Beloved annual pieces to be performed include: “The Glory of the Father” (Egil Hovland); “Personent Hodie” (arr. Lara Hoggard); “There Shall A Star Come Out of Jacob” (Felix Mendelssohn) and “Hallelujah Chorus” (G.F. Handel). Dr. Kim Kasling, professor emeritus of music, will be featured on the newly expanded Holtkamp-Pasi pipe organ. This annual concert celebrates the seasons of Advent and Christmas through traditional and contemporary music.
