Lee University’s annual “A Classic Christmas” will be held on Sunday, Dec. 8, at 3 p.m. in the Conn Center. 

The first half of this year's program will feature Francis Poulenc's “Gloria,” which includes a performance by Lee alumna Caitlin Hammon, who is now completing her master’s degree in opera and vocal performance from McGill University in Montreal, Canada. This work will be performed by the Lee University Choral Union and Symphony Orchestra under the direction of Dr. Cameron F. LaBarr.  

The second half of the program will include various arrangements of familiar Christmas carols and other lighter Christmas works. Among those are “Ding Dong Merrily on High,” “I'll Be Home for Christmas,” “Have yourself a Merry Little Christmas,” “What Child is This,” and “Silent Night.” The Chattanooga Girls Choir will perform under the direction of LuAnn Holden and the Lee University Chorale will perform under the direction of Dr. William Green. 

Admission to “A Classic Christmas” is free of charge, but tickets are required due to limited seating. Tickets can be obtained at the Dixon Center box office from 3-6 p.m. beginning Monday. Any remaining tickets will be available in the Conn Center lobby on Sunday at 2 p.m., one hour before the performance.
