The Alma College Choirs at the 2010 FoC
The Festival of Carols is not a worship service; rather it is a community celebration welcoming people of all faiths for a concert of familiar carols and sacred masterpieces that are part of our shared heritage. The concert attracts an audience that is looking for a chance to slow down and be reminded of the peace and wonder of Christmas.
The Alma Choir sings "Angels from Heaven Came"
The 160 members of the Glee Club, Chorale and The Alma Choir are joined by student instrumentalists from the College's marvelous Percussion Ensemble and Symphony Orchestra. Choral singing is the centerpiece of the Festival of Carols, and audiences will know many of the carols by heart.
