The Music Department at Caldwell University will present its annual Christmas Spectacular concert Friday, December 9, 7 p.m., in the Student Center Auditorium on campus.

The University Chorale will perform songs including “Carol of the Bells,” Victoria’s “O Magnum Mysterium” and the beloved “Christmas Song”. The Chorale is directed by Music Department Chair Laura Greenwald and accompanied by Nancy Chamberlain.

Music Department Professor Rebecca Vega, a Verona resident, will direct the University Wind Ensemble and High School Honor band, with selections that include Leroy Anderson’s “Sleigh Ride,” the traditional “Celtic Carol” and the world premiere of “Christmas Exultations” by Joshua Idio, who was in the honor band while a student at Nutley High School. This year Idio asked Vega to premiere his piece with the current Wind Ensemble/Honor Band. He came to a rehearsal and shared with the students his experiences as a young composer.
