Friday, December 1 7:30 pm central time John and Alice Butler Hall, Heritage Center Christmas at Heritage Center will feature the talents of the UD Concert Choir, directed by Charles Barland, professor of music and head of the Fine and Performing Arts Department; the UD Wind Ensemble, conducted by Benjamen Blasko, director of instrumental music and assistant professor of music; and the UD Chamber Singers, directed by Kristen Eby, adjunct music faculty. Joining the UD ensembles on stage will be the Madison Area Concert Handbell Ensemble. Support for the guest handbell ensemble appearance is provided by the Sheppley Foundation. Featured narrators will be Thomas Robbins, executive director of Heritage Center; Annalee Ward, director of the Wendt Character Initiative; Brian Hallstoos, associate professor of history; Kevin Cattani, director of sports marketing and associate professor of health, wellness and sport; Sean Benson, professor of English; and Elizabeth Swan (C’17), graduate student in the University of Dubuque Theological Seminary’s Master of Divinity program. Titled A Little Child, God Before Time, the concert will follow the Christmas narrative “Kontakia of Romanos, Byzantine Melodist I: On the Person of Christ,” translated and annotated by Marjorie Carpenter. The narrative correlates 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 “Away in a Manger,” “Silent Night,” and “Hark! The Herald Angels Sing.”
