Art, narration, dramatic lighting and music by 450 student musicians produce the region's most dramatic Christmas celebration. The concert, by composer and conductor Dr. René Clausen, begins with the recognition that darkness, grief and sorrow touch all of our lives as darkness touched the Concordia community with the sudden and unexpected loss of President Pamela Jolicoeur. But for Christians, through the darkness is the promise of light. Artist Paul Johnson designed the magnificent mural that serves as the backdrop for the concert.
