Willamette University Music will present the annual Christmas In Hudson Hall concerts on Thursday, December 6thth and Friday, December 7thth 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, and the Chamber Choir. 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.
