Posted: November 30th, 2012

SAULT STE. MARIE, Mich. – Singers and musicians from throughout the community will combine their talents at 7 p.m. on Dec. 1 for a holiday concert in Lake Superior State University’s Arts Center auditorium.

"A Laker Christmas" will feature the LSSU chorus and community choir and the Soo Theatre orchestras. In addition to well-known Christmas selections such as Vivaldi’s “Gloria” and Handel’s “Hallelujah Chorus,” the program will include a narrated performance of Charles Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol” that will feature the LSSU Theatre Dept. and the STARS Orchestra. LSSU Humanities Prof. James Moody will throw aside his normally cheerful demeanor to play Ebenezer Scrooge.
