This annual holiday concert always draws a very large crowd of Northwest Indiana residents.  For this year’s concert, we have commissioned a new work, Sleep, Sleep, Happy Child, from Indiana-based American composer Dominick DiOrio, Associate Professor of Music at Indiana University, Bloomington. The balance of the program will include other 21st Christmas works and familiar carols in new arrangements. The concert will close, as usual, with our traditional, candlelit “Silent Night.”
