This year, the Wheaton College Conservatory of Music will present a special Christmas Festival concert on Friday, Dec. 18.

While the concert won't be held on campus this year, they will be recording and producing a new Christmas Festival Concert which will be available online by registration.

 

It will feature the Wheaton College Concert Choir, Women's Chorale, Men's Glee Club, Symphony Orchestra, Percussion Ensemble, and Harp Ensemble.

They will present a full concert celebrating the birth of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. This year's concert also will feature special guest, baritone Will Liverman, Class of 2010.

Wheaton College Conservatory of Music, one of the premier Christian music programs in the country, will present "Risen with Healing in His Wings," a program with a selection of songs celebrating the comfort that comes from God in times of trial.

Next fall, Liverman will headline the Met Opera's reopening production of "Fire Shut Up In My Bones." His new opera, "The Factotum," is being workshopped by the Ryan Opera Center at the Lyric Opera of Chicago this month. He is the winner of the 2020 Marian Anderson Award, given by the Kennedy Center, and his recording "Whither Must I Wander" with pianist Jonathan King is now available on Odradek Records.
