2013 Holiday Lobby Concert

I was introduced today to another UW-Eau Claire tradition: The annual Holiday Lobby Concert in the Haas Fine Arts Center. What a treat to witness this concert, organized entirely by UW-Eau Claire students.

I took my place in an audience of UW-Eau Claire students, faculty and staff as well as community members of all ages to watch and listen as our student musicians did their thing. From handbells to euphoniums to woodwinds to a cappella vocal arrangements, we heard a delightful array of holiday tunes. What an outstanding way to spend a Friday lunch hour!

Many thanks to the student chapter of the Collegiate Music Educators National Conference for sponsoring this free event. I can't wait until next year!
