Waldorf College will welcome the holiday season at Christmas with Waldorf, an annual weekend of concert performances, at Immanuel Lutheran Church on Saturday, Dec. 7 at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday, Dec. 8 at 3 p.m. The concert theme for 2013 is Angels Sing with Joy.

“This year we celebrate the Angle’s proclamation of ‘Glory to God in the highest and peace on earth,’” said Choral Director Dr. Adam Luebke. “I’m very excited for the college to present this program because the music includes many familiar carols, as well as John Rutter’s thrilling Gloria for choir and brass.”

The Waldorf Choir, Schola Cantorum, Sangkor, and members of the Waldorf Wind Symphony will perform musical selections that celebrate the Christmas Story. “As in years past, the audience will be able to join in and sing carols such as Hark! The Herald Angels Sing and Silent Night,” Dr. Luebke added.

Tickets for this decades-old tradition cost $5 and are available by calling 641-585-8724 or visiting the Immanuel Lutheran Church office. Tickets will also be available at the door before each performance.

Prior to both concerts, a Scandinavian meal with American holiday favorites will be served in the Waldorf College Atrium. Dinner will be served from 5:30 to 7:00 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 7, with brunch served from 12:00 to 2:00 p.m. on Sunday, Dec. 8.  Tickets for the Scandinavian dinner or brunch must be purchased in advance by calling 641-585-8724 or at the Immanuel Lutheran Church office. Saturday dinner and concert tickets are $20 each. Sunday brunch and concert tickets are $17, while brunch-only tickets are $12.
