Augustana Will Present Virtual Christmas Program as Online Advent Calendar
In place of a massive, festive in-person concert at Centennial Hall, Augustana College is presenting a new virtual performance of “Christmas
at Augustana” throughout the month of December.
To kick off the Christmas season, the Rock Island-based college has adapted its typically sold-out performances to an at-home experience for all.
Three hundred student musicians will be participating in performances by the Augustana Brass
Ensemble, Ascension Ringers, Augustana Symphony Orchestra, Augustana Choir, Augustana Concert Chorale and Jenny Lind Vocal Ensemble and the Augustana Jazz Ensemble.
Throughout the month, you can see programs online as part of a virtual Christmas at Augustana Advent Calendar offering. Starting Dec. 1, visit www.augustana.edu/christmas and open the “door” on a daily performance.
Each release on each day will feature an Augustana ensemble performing a festive new work or a pre-recorded favorite from previous Christmas seasons.
Performances will be released daily through Dec. 24, 2020. No tickets are necessary, however donations are appreciated. To see last year’s Christmas at Augustana program, which was Dec. 7-8, click HERE.
