Celebrate the holiday season with Chapman University's 50th Annual Holiday Wassail Concert.
Viewers will be charmed by a wide variety of festive music, including holiday favorites such as, "Sleigh Ride," "White Christmas" and "We Wish You a Merry Christmas." Traditional carols will include, "The Holly and the Ivy" and "Hallelujah Chorus," in addition to global hymns like, "Amuworo ayi otu nwa" from Africa and the classic Hanukkah song, "Aleih Neiri."
The production is performed by more than 150 Chapman University singers and musicians from the University's Women's Choir, University Choir, University Singers and the Chapman University Chamber Orchestra. Selections will be conducted by Stephen Coker, Angel Vázquez -Ramos and Daniel Alfred Wachs.
To celebrate the program's 50th anniversary, Dr. William Hall, concert founder and Chapman's founding dean and artistic director for the Center for the Arts, will make a special appearance during the popular production to conduct the finale of Handel's "Hallelujah Chorus."
