Weekend watch: Christmas music at colleges

Friday through Sunday

You can’t get very far without hearing Christmas music these days. And if you’re on the campuses of Concordia College or North Dakota State University this weekend, you’ll hear a lot of it.

The 86th annual Concordia College Christmas Concert, combining 450 members of the choirs and orchestra for the production, “All Are Welcome,” kicks off a weekend run Friday night at 7 p.m. Subsequent shows are at 2 and 7 p.m. Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday, all in Memorial Auditorium. Tickets are $13. (888) 477-0277.

The football team won’t be the only thing making a joyful noise this weekend for NDSU. Jo Ann Miller leads over 300 students in five choirs and the Baroque Festival Orchestra through Handel’s “Messiah” at 2 p.m., Sunday at Festival Concert Hall. Tickets range from $5 for students to $15 for adults. (701) 231-7969.
