EAST LANSING, Mich. – The MSU College of Music visits the Christmas of old this holiday season with its annual MSU’s Home for the Holidays performance on Saturday, Dec. 7 at 8 p.m. in Wharton Center’s Cobb Great Hall.
The interactive evening, which is part of the College of Music’s MSU Federal Credit Union Showcase Series, will offer an array of traditional holiday music, sing-alongs, story telling, and a special visit from old Saint Nick. Audience members will be given a free ornament and children will be invited on stage during the performance to decorate the tree.
“This is a delightful show for all ages,” says director and co-writer Kevin Noe, professor of music and director of MSU orchestras. “Through the lens of the special memories of childhood, the audience will be taken on a nostalgic trip to the Christmas of old.
