Dr. Kurt von Kampen receives applause after the 2013 Christmas at Concordia concert at St. John Lutheran Church in Seward, Nebraska. Tickets for the 2014 Christmas at Concordia concerts are available Nov. 3 at 11 a.m. at christmasatconcordia.net.
Registration for Christmas at Concordia, an annual series of free concerts that feature various music ensembles from Concordia opens Monday, Nov. 3 at 11 a.m. Tickets can be reserved at christmasatconcordia.net or by calling 402-643-7171. The concerts are open to the public, and reservations are required for admission.
“We are honored to share the Gospel message and the joy of the season with as many people as possible,” said Concordia Director of Alumni and University Relations Adam Hengeveld. “Such talented student musicians draw quite a crowd each year. Last year all tickets were reserved in 80 minutes, so it is critical to reserve tickets as soon after 11 a.m. as possible, and we ask that attendees only reserve the number of tickets they will need.”
Performances will be Friday, Dec. 5, at 7 p.m., Saturday, Dec. 6, at 3 and 7 p.m., and Sunday, Dec. 7, at 3 p.m., at St. John Lutheran Church in Seward.
