Christmas at Concordia 2019

58:00


December 17, 2019

Each year, the mystery of the Nativity invites us to contemplate with awe and to respond with joy. Music of contemplation and music of joy are both featured in this season's Concordia Christmas Concert. Highlights from the 2018 concert, For the Beauty of the Earth, feature the combined choirs and orchestra of Concordia College in Moorhead, Minn.

Contemporary and traditional works are lovingly presented in this yearly holiday treat, hosted by Andrea Blain.
