Utah State University Music Department Continues Holiday Tradition With Wintersongs Concert

By Kate Stewart |

LOGAN, Utah — The combined choirs and organ students of the USU Music Department will present Wintersongs 2023 from 6-8 p.m. Nov. 30 at the St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic Church in Hyde Park.

This cherished Cache Valley holiday tradition will feature beautiful, timeless choral music performed by the USU Treble Choir, Chorale and Chamber Singers, with English handbells, the organ of St. Thomas, strings, and a candlelight processional that will make for a wonderful and warm atmosphere.

“This year’s Wintersongs concert will feature music that is far from the commercial, artificial glitz we often see during the holidays,” said Cory Evans, director of choral activities at USU.

The evening will include music of Giovanni Gabrieli, Pavel Tschesnokoff, John Rutter, David Willcocks, and a festive performance of Benjamin Britten's “A Ceremony of Carols” with harpist Chilali Hugo.

According to Evans, the choirs will also combine to perform inspiring seasonal favorites accompanied by David Jones on the “glorious St. Thomas organ.”

Both concerts are free and open to the public. No tickets are required for entry. Evans said donations to the USU Choirs will be accepted. Please, no children under the age of 8.
