Lakeland University's music ensembles have an evening of festival carols and holiday spirit planned at the annual Christmas at Lakeland concert.
The Lakeland band, jazz ensemble and choir will all be part of the concert, set for Friday, Dec. 7, beginning at 7:30 p.m. in the Bradley Theatre. Admission is free and open to all.
The band and jazz ensemble will perform a variety of popular tunes including "Let it Snow!" and music from Charlie Brown Christmas. The band will also perform an original piece called "December Dance" by Andrew Boysen.
The choir portion of the concert is "A Ceremony of Carols" with interesting arrangements of popular Christmas tunes such as "The First Noel," "Go Tell It on the Mountain" and "Ding Dong Merrily on High."
There will be an audience sing-along accompanied by the band, and the choir and band will play a combined piece.
The Lakeland instrumental ensembles are directed by Evan Chancellor, while the choir is directed by Emily Davis. Both are members of Lakeland's music faculty.
