Loyola sings in the season with holiday musical events

December 2, 2011

Loyola University New Orleans will celebrate the Christmas season with two musical events on Sunday, Dec. 4. Singing with Santa, a Christmas sing-along for the Loyola community, will take place in the Danna Student Center’s St. Charles Room at 12:30 p.m. The public can partake in Christmas at Loyola, an annual Christmas concert held at Holy Name of Jesus Church, which starts at 3 p.m.

Singing with Santa is a free event for the Loyola community and will feature a performance of The Porta-Puppet Players’ “Storytime with Mrs. Claus,” an interactive comedic puppet show with special appearances by Chrissy the Christmas mouse, Frosty the Snowman, Yule Tide the elf, and Mr. and Mrs. Claus. Santa will be in attendance to lead caroling of holiday favorites at the piano while children decorate Christmas cookies and a professional photographer takes family portraits.

The annual Christmas at Loyola musical celebration has been a popular tradition for 19 years. The concert is free and open to the public and showcases several Loyola ensembles, including the Loyola Chamber Orchestra directed by Jean Montès, D.M.A., Loyola and Women’s Chorales directed by Meg Frazier, D.M.A., and the Loyola Brass Ensemble directed by Nick Volz. The concert features a mix of classical Christmas chorale and orchestral music and a Christmas carol sing-along.

Free parking is available in Loyola’s West Road Garage, located on West Road and accessible from St. Charles Ave. For more information, contact the Office of Public Affairs at publaff@loyno.edu or 504-861-5888.
