The annual Christmas at Concordia concert is always a popular event for students; this year was no different.
For the third year in row, Christmas at Concordia sold out of tickets in a few days. Seeing a huge crowd in attendance was satisfying for CUW choir member Jonathon Gideon.
“It is really cool too see all of the support from the students and faculty here at Concordia. It really does make of all us feel special and worthwhile,” Gideon said.
All the Christmas at Concordia participants practiced a lot to prepare for the concert.
“We spent pretty the entire semester practicing and preparing for the concert. I for one am glad that it is over, but it was definitely nice to hear that standing ovation at the end of the concert, and to see all of the happy faces,” band member Collin Steiner said.
From the student perspective, Christmas at Concordia was a fun show to see and a must see for next year.
“Christmas at Concordia was amazing, and awesome. I loved all of it and it really helped me get into the Christmas spirit. The performers sounded great, and it was cool to see the culmination of all of their work,” Wong said.
Christmas at Concordia 2017 was once again a success, and people are looking forward to the concert in 2018.
