 Anderson University Choir Members to Perform withKenny Rogers in Christmas Concert

On Sunday November 28, 2010, a group of singers from the Anderson University choir will take the stage with a musical icon- country legend Kenny Rogers. Beginning at 7:30 pm at the Anderson Civic Center, “Kenny Rogers Christmas and Hits Tour” will feature Christmas classics, as well as Rogers’ biggest country hits.

The talent coordinator for Kenny Rogers’ productions recently contacted the director of AU’s music department, Dr. Richard Williamson, about providing additional vocals for the holiday program. During the second part of the show, members of the AU choir, including current AU music students, alumni, and music faculty, will perform a festive Christmas Medley with Rogers.

“When our students have the opportunity to take part in these events it is such great experience for them,” said Williamson. “We want them to have these experiences and they are able to get them because they have the talent to take part in professional productions. Not only is it an invaluable opportunity for them, but it also showcases, once again, the quality of our music program here at Anderson University.”

Tickets are now on sale at the Civic Center box office and all Ticketmaster locations.
