Classical 101 Airs Capital University Christmas Festival 3 pm Sun.

Music by some of the greatest composers who ever lived. Poetry and Scripture readings. Solo singers, five choral ensembles and an orchestra. It's the Capital University Christmas Festival, an annual offering of music and words celebrating the Christmas season and bringing together the central Ohio community. Join me Sunday at 3 pm for Classical 101's broadcast of the 2012 Capital University Christmas Festival, And the Glory of the Lord Shone Round. Recorded live at Capital University's Mees Hall Auditorium, the 2012 Christmas Festival includes spiritually illuminating music by Mendelssohn, Charles Ives, Morten Lauridsen, Handel, William Billings, Craig Courtney and others composers alongside readings from the Bible and poems old and new. Performances showcase Capital University's Chapel Choir, Women's Chorus and Choral Union; the Capital University Chordsmen; the university's chamber vocal ensemble, Philomel, and an orchestra of university and community instrumentalists in a program produced and directed by Capital University Director of Choral Activities Lynda Hasseler. The Capital University Christmas Festival has been a central Ohio tradition since 1928, when the university performed its first festival as a gift to the community. Tune in to Classical 101 Sunday at 3 pm for Capital University's 2012 Christmas Festival, And the Glory of the Lord Shone Round.
