Annual Christmas at Chowan Concert Delights Audience with Festive Performances
On Sunday, December 3rd, Chowan University hosted its highly anticipated annual Christmas at Chowan presentation in Turner Auditorium. The concert, a cherished tradition in the community, showcased a delightful array of performances by talented students, faculty, and local artists. Under the expert direction of Dr. Mary Hellman, Dr. Chris Cook, and Director of Choral Activities, Jordan Cartrette, the event captivated the audience with its enchanting holiday spirit.
The Christmas at Chowan concert featured a diverse range of musical acts, including heartwarming choral performances, instrumental solos, and a wonderful reading of The Christmas Story by Reverend Mari Wiles. The talented performers skillfully brought to life beloved holiday classics, filling the auditorium with joyous melodies and festive cheer. The concert also included a special appearance by the one and only Santa Claus, who delighted the children in the audience by reading them a heartwarming Christmas story.
In the true spirit of the season, the event organizers encouraged attendees to contribute gift donations instead of purchasing admission tickets. These generous donations will be used to support the children of Hertford County, spreading the joy of Christmas to those in need. The community’s overwhelming response to this call for giving back truly exemplifies the spirit of compassion and generosity that defines the holiday season.
The Christmas at Chowan concert has become a cherished tradition in the Murfreesboro community, bringing together students, faculty, and residents in a celebration of music and holiday spirit. The event not only showcases the incredible talent within the Chowan University community but also serves as a reminder of the importance of giving back during this special time of year.
