MSU Music presents an uplifting concert to celebrate the season 
More than 200 singers and instrumentalists unite at Wharton Center to tell the story of Christmas. 

Choir and orchestra members of the Michigan State University College of Music will gather to bring the joy and spirit of the holiday season to the community through Telling the Story: Christmas Oratorios by Bach & Saint-Saëns. This concert of inspiring music and storytelling at the Cobb Great Hall of Wharton Center on Saturday, Dec. 10, at 8 p.m. is the first in the MSU Federal Credit Union Showcase Series that highlights a mix of musical excellence within the College of Music. 

 This annual holiday concert offers inspired and uplifting choral music and celebrates the festive season in December. The event marks the second year that MSU choirs of this scale have been able to rehearse and perform live and in-person on stage since the pandemic sidelined the event in 2019 and 2020, and reflects the excitement felt by the choral community. 

 “We chose the program for Telling the Story: Christmas Oratorios by Bach & Saint-Saëns because the music of Saint-Säens complements that of Bach,” said Professor of Music and MSU Choral Director David Rayl.
Rayl will conduct more than 200 instrumentalists and singers from the MSU Choral Union, University Chorale, State Singers, and the MSU Symphony Orchestra in selections from the Christmas Oratorios of J.S. Bach and Camille Saint-Saëns.
Reserved-seat tickets for this event are $22 for adults, $20 for seniors (age 60 and older), and $12 for students, plus a $3.50 Wharton facility fee. Tickets are available through Wharton Center box office only. Call 517-432-2000, (800) WHARTON, or visit Tickets can also be purchased at the door if available.

The event is finished.
