Gloria! Holiday Music from Russia and Beyond - 12/8/2012

This evening Sarah and I travelled to Athens and the Ohio University's Templeton-Blackburn Alumni Memorial Auditorium to see Gloria! Holiday Music from Russia and Beyond.


The extended school term has allowed the university's music department to add this holiday concert to it's annual schedule.

The concert featured the University Symphony Orchestra, Ohio University Singers, Singing Men of Ohio, Women's Chorale and Choral Union.  Performances included selections from The Nutcracker, Ave Maria, Gloria and Hallelujah Chorus.  As the different groups changed on stage, the conductor directed the audience to sing carols as the lyrics projected overhead.

The show was very entertaining and a little long, at 2 hours and 45 minutes.  Sarah and I enjoyed the show.
