Decorations fill Meyer Hall as students sing “We Wish You a Merry Christmas” in the vocal department’s final performance of 2021.

On Dec. 18, the vocal department will hold two holiday concerts in Meyer Hall from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. and 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. The concert program is composed of a variety of well-known holiday songs, including familiar Christmas and Hanukkah songs. The concerts included upbeat classics like “Feliz Navidad” by José Feliciano, as well as more serious ones such as “Lux Aurumque” by Eric Whitacre.

“What I’m really looking forward to is being back up on that stage,” vocal junior Sophia Burnston said. “People say that absence makes the heart grow fonder. So, not being able to perform all of last year makes me appreciate performances this year that much more.”

This concert follows the Prism concert in November, which featured the entire music department. Some of the songs performed in Prism will also be included in the holiday vocal concert.

“I hope (the audience members) have fun,” Burnston said. “The whole point of this is just to have fun, enjoy some holiday music, and hope they leave feeling a little bit more holiday cheer.”

The department’s next performance will be their vocal senior showcase on Feb. 17.
