Join Us for Christmastide on Dec. 7

Dec 04, 2019

Trinity’s Music Department invites the community to attend the 18th Annual Christmastide program on Saturday, December 7 at 4 pm in the Ozinga Chapel. This year’s theme, “Jesus, Prince of Peace,” reflects thanksgiving to God for the new hope and peace the Christ Child brings to a dark world. The program features music by Trinity’s vocal and instrumental ensembles, audience singing with brass and organ, and readings that reflect the theme.

Doors open at 3:30 p.m.

“Christmastide is the only occasion in the academic year when all of our ensembles–vocal and instrumental–come together for a celebrative event commemorating Christ’s incarnation,” said Dr. Helen Van Wyck, professor of music and director of choral activities. “It will be a joyous, worshipful event of beautiful music and readings proclaiming the wonder of Christmas.”

Christmastide contains vocal performances by the Concert Choir, Gospel Choir, and Honors Ensemble. Trinity’s Wind Ensemble and Brass Quintet will also take part in the celebration.

This Christmastide also represents the last time Dr. Van Wyck oversees this annual tradition. After 33 years at Trinity, she will be retiring at the end of the 2019-20 academic year.
