Christmas at Susquehanna: The 50th Anniversary Candelight Service
Experience the beauty of Weber Chapel bathed in the glow of 1,500 candles in "Christmas at Susquehanna: The 50th Anniversary Candelight Service." Recorded in December 2016, the program captures the voices of students, faculty, staff, alumni, families and community members joining together on the campus of Susquehanna University in historic Selinsgrove, Pennsylvania to celebrate 50 years of a cherished tradition: Susquehanna University's annual Christmas candlelight service, which was first held on December 15, 1966. The hour-long music special is a wondrous spectacle of candle lighting and carols, as well as traditional readings and songs in celebration of the season. Professor Emeritus of Music Cyril Stretansky, conductor of the University Choir for 35 years, commemorated the occasion by conducting Gustav Holst's "O God Beyond All Praising" with the University Choir and alumni singers. The service also features numerous student musical ensembles, including the University Choir, University Chorale, Chamber Singers, Handbell Choir and Brass Ensemble. Musical highlights include: "Hark! the Herald Angels Sing," "O Little Town of Bethlehem," "We Three Kings," "Silent Night" and more.
