Willamette University Music presents annual Christmas in Hudson Hall

SALEM, Ore. — Tickets are now on sale in the Willamette University Music office for the annual Christmas In Hudson Hall concerts, presented on Thursday, December 7th and Friday, December 8th 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.

Doors open at 6:45 p.m. Tickets are $10 (festival seating) and $8 for students and can be purchased Monday-Friday between 9:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. 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 box office if not sold out. Will Call ticket pickup will also begin at 6:30pm.
