CLU concerts to ring in Christmas season
Choirs and University Symphony will perform

THOUSAND OAKS, CA – The CLU Choral Ensembles and University Symphony will combine forces to present the 50th annual CLU Christmas Festival Concerts Dec. 4 through 6.

The performances will be at 8 p.m. Friday, Dec. 4, and Saturday, Dec. 5, and at 4 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 6, in Samuelson Chapel.

The free concerts, the university’s longest-running annual event, will feature a narrated performance of Christmas music. The program will include delightful lesser-known carols as well as familiar favorites sung by the CLU Choir and Women’s Chorale. Additionally, the University Symphony strings will perform Roy Douglas’ “A Nowell Sequence” based on themes from Ralph Vaughan Williams’ unfinished opera “The First Nowell.” Wyant Morton, chair of the music department and director of choral and voice activities, and Daniel Geeting, director of instrumental music, will conduct.

Donations will be accepted.

The chapel is located near the corner of Olsen Road and Campus Drive in Thousand Oaks. This is always a very popular concert so arrive early for convenient parking and the best seating.
