This Sunday Sams Chapel will be filled with sounds of the Christmas season as KWU presents Christmas by Candlelight, “Hear the Angels Sing, Christ is Born.”
Ahead of Sunday’s concert, three KW music students joined director Ken Hakoda Thursday with a live performance on the KSAL Morning News.
Hakoda says the showcase is filled with traditional music, “We’re are celebrating the true meaning of Christmas, which is the birth of Christ,” he said.
“We don’t have Santa Claus coming out, no reindeers over there. We keep everything sacred and that has been a very important tradition for us.”
There will be two performances; choirs from Salina South High, Salina Central High with join KWU’s Philharmonic Choir and Wesleyan Chorale and KWU String Orchestra during the 3pm event, while the Southeast of Saline and Sacred Heart High School Choirs take the stage with KWU during the 7:30pm performance.
A traditional holiday dinner will be served at 5:30pm in Hauptli Student Center at a cost of $20 per ticket. Concert tickets are free, but reservations are strongly recommended.
