The Concert Choir is one of several UIndy music ensembles performing this weekend in “A Christmas Celebration” at the Christel DeHaan Fine Arts Center.

Favorite carols, a Christmas concerto, and music celebrating the season from the distant past are in store this weekend when the University of Indianapolis Department of Music performs its annual “Christmas Celebration” concerts.

UIndy’s choral, instrumental and handbell ensembles will perform at 7:30 p.m. Friday and 4 p.m. Sunday in the elegant Ruth Lilly Performance Hall of the Christel DeHaan Fine Arts Center.

The UIndy Handbell Ensemble directed by Peter Nichols will provide pre-concert music on stage before the program begins with a candlelight processional.

Led by Paul Krasnovsky with organist Marko Petričić and pianist Haruka Ostojić, UIndy’s Concert Choir, Schola, and Women’s Chorus will perform traditional carols of the season along with Christmas music from the late Middle Ages and the early Renaissance.  The UIndy Chamber Orchestra led by Austin Hartman then performs Baroque composer Arcangelo Corelli’s “Christmas Concerto,” and the evening will end with Leroy Anderson’s classic “Sleigh Ride” and a holiday sing-along conducted by Vu Nguyen.

Tickets, at $10 general admission or $6 for students and seniors, are available at the door or in advance at (317) 788-3251 or uindy.edu/etc.
