Annual holiday event scheduled for Dec. 5 at Hobson Performance Center
There’s a chill in the air, and a large decorated tree stands at the center of Academic Circle. At Campbell University, this means Christmas at Campbell is just around the corner.
Presented by the Department of Music, Christmas at Campbell will be held at 7 p.m. on Dec. 5 in the Hobson Performance Center. This year’s event will begin with the African Processional Gloria — performed by strolling string players and the University Choir — followed by traditional holiday favorites like It’s the Holiday Season and Caroling, Caroling.
The Triangle Brass Band, which has spent over 30 years providing brass band music to the region and spreading awareness of the art, will perform Joy to the World, Let the Bells Ring and Frosty the Snowman. Campbell Instrumental Faculty members Nate Campbell (marimba), Dr. Christian McIver (trumpet) and Dr. William Beach (tuba) will be featured soloists with the band.
“This amazing and festive night will conclude with you, our audience, as we all join in to sing traditional Christmas carols,” said Dr. Dwayne Wilson, director of bands and instrumental studies.
Admission to Christmas at Campbell is free, and no tickets are required.
