( Thu., Dec. 1, 2022 - Sat., Dec. 3, 2022 )
Grace Chapel , 625 7th Avenue NE, Hickory, NC 27601
The beloved tradition brings the university and community together for a celebration of joy and fellowship.
The concert will feature the university A Cappella Choir, College Singers, Brass Ensemble, a string quartet, the chapel’s pipe organ and additional student instrumentalists.
This year’s theme, “The Weary World Rejoices,” comes from the first verse of the familiar hymn, “O Holy Night,” in which the birth of Jesus Christ inspires “A thrill of hope, the weary world rejoices, for yonder breaks a new and glorious morn.” The lyric reflects the way many people feel after more than two years of turmoil from the global pandemic and other challenges.
