Forest City, IOWA – ‘Tis the season to celebrate a weekend of joyful sounds at Christmas With Waldorf!
On Dec. 3, Waldorf University will sponsor a dinner and concert at the Waldorf Atrium for all to attend. The dinner will be from 5 to 6:30 p.m. followed by the concert at 7 p.m. at Immanuel Lutheran Church. Performing will be guest artist Paul Micich, leader and composer for the band World Port, based in Des Moines.
Micich will entertain the crowd with his EVI electric horn, a hybrid instrument that uses the expression and control of a wind instrument to shape digital sound. The electronic valve instrument produces a variety of timbres as Micich combines sampled sounds. He uses multiple synthesizers mixing raw sounds to shape with the horn.
He will play with the Waldorf Choir on several selections including the Norwegian carol, “O Yule, Full of Gladness” and “Ah, Holy Jesus.”
