• Christmas Festival 2015 Tickets Available November 2

    Capital University will present Christmas Festival 2015, with all your heart, on Thursday, December 3, through Sunday, December 6, in Mees Hall. Public ticket sales will begin Monday, November 2.

    Featuring performances by the World Choir Games Gold Medal-Winning Chapel Choir, along with Choral Union, Women’s Chorus, The Chordsmen, Philomel and a variety of instrumentalists, Capital’s annual Christmas Festival is a transcendent musical offering during which more than 300 musicians embrace the audience in song. The readings, which range from scripture to poetry, serve to illuminate themes that connect us as humans.

    Lighting and staging transition the environment from intimate candlelit ambience to a brightly lit concert hall resonating with the sounds of audience and choir singing together as a “multitude of the heavenly hosts.” This more-than-a-concert event features songs from past centuries, combined with familiar carols and arrangements and music representing a wide range of musical cultures and styles.

    Capital’s Christmas Festival celebrates our own traditions with familiar carols and readings while also honoring those observed by cultures worldwide. And for a few hours during the first weekend of each December, the concept of community becomes a tangible experience.

    Concert tickets are $35 for adults and $20 for students and senior citizens (age 62 and older). The Thursday and Friday performances will be preceded by a gourmet dinner at 5:30 pm in the Harry C. Moores Student Union. The dinner is $28 per person and attendance is by reservation and prepayment only. Performance and dinner tickets can only be purchased through CAPA online; in person at the Ohio Theatre Ticket Office, 39 E. State St., Columbus, OH 43215; or by calling CAPA at 614-469-0939.

    Space is limited, so call the CAPA box office and reserve your space early.
