ASU kicks off Christmas season

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (Dec. 2, 2008) -- Alabama State University officially kicks off the Christmas season Wednesday, Dec. 3, with the first Christmas Tree lighting ceremony of the season for  Montgomery and two other events that promise to even put Scrooge into the holiday spirit.

Wednesday, Dec. 3, at 5 p.m., ASU's annual Christmas tree-lighting ceremony will be held in the North Academic Mall - off North University Dr. -  and will feature Christmas music and refreshments.

Friday, Dec. 5, the Mighty Marching Hornets, under the direction of Dr. James Oliver, will march in the annual State Capital Christmas Parade at 6 p.m. in downtown Montgomery.

Sunday, Dec. 7, ASU's University Choir, under the direction of Dr. Joel Jones, will round out its holiday events with its highly regarded Christmas concert at 6 p.m. in ASU's Lelia Barlow Theatre.

The choir will be joined by two groups -- the Chamber Singers, an elite vocal ensemble of the university's choral program whose members are selected by audition; and the Frederick Douglass Hall Community Choirs, a community based choir that is open to everyone.

All three events are free and open to the public.  For more information, contact ASU's department of Music at (334) 229-4341.
