Musical Groups Present Annual Christmas Festival

Published: Nov 25, 2003

UT’s Collegiate Chorale, Glee Club, and Wind Ensemble will join with the Tampa Oratorio Singers on Sunday, Dec. 7, to present the 18th annual Family Christmas Festival at historic Sacred Heart Church in downtown Tampa.

 

The free concert, which culminates with a massed choir performance of Handel’s “Hallelujah Chorus,” is a favorite Tampa Bay area tradition for ushering in the holidays.

 

Also scheduled are performances of “Gloria in Excelsis,” “Domine Deus Rex Caelestis,” “O Magnum Mysterium,” “Good Christian Men Rejoice,” “The Boar’s Head Carol,” “Ave Maria,” “The First Noel,” “I’ll Be Home for Christmas,” “Sleigh Ride” and others.

 

The show begins at 4 p.m. Because of its popularity, early seating is advised.

 

Sacred Heart Church is on the corner of Florida Avenue and Twiggs Street.
