The Music Program at Eastern Connecticut State University will host programs in early December to enrich the cultural life of the campus and local community. Events will range from holiday concerts to family friendly productions, and will be held in the Fine Arts Instructional Center (FAIC) Concert Hall. Admission for all concerts is free; donations are gratefully accepted at the door.

On Dec. 4 at 7:30 p.m., Eastern music students will present a concert of chamber repertoire from the Baroque period. The concert will include performances by both instrumentalists and singers enrolled in Chamber Music Repertoire.

On Dec. 5 at 7:30 p.m., join the Eastern Concert Band in a celebration of the “Sounds of the Season.” Selections such as “Carol of the Bells,” “A Christmas Festival” and “Rhapsody for Hanukkah” will get audience members in the holiday spirit.

On Dec. 7 at 7:30 p.m., faculty members Chris Howard (clarinet) and David Ballena (piano) will present an evening of favorites from the clarinet and piano repertoire as part of the Faculty Recital Series. The evening will feature works by Johannes Brahms.

On Dec. 9 at 2:30 p.m., a talented cast of Eastern students, alumni and faculty will collaborate to present “Amahl and the Night Visitors.” This 50-minute opera tells the story of the Magi from the point of view of a young boy, Amahl, and his widowed mother. Eastern’s fully staged and costumed production of this holiday classic captures the child-like excitement and mystery of the season and is great for children and families. Donations of new and unwrapped toys and games will be accepted at the door and donated to a local toy drive.
