The University of St. Thomas choirs participated in many events this fall. The Capital Campaign Closing Celebration included a flash mob and gospel tune performed by our Festival Choir, and the Liturgical Choir sang at the Mass that preceded the event. Other fall events included an October concert with our Chamber Singers, Concert Choir and Festival Choirs our Women's Choir at All Souls’ Day Mass, a pops concert and musical theater concert by members of the Festival Choir, and many special liturgies by the Liturgical Choir; in addition, the Liturgical Choir welcomed Cantus, a professional male vocal ensemble based in the Twin Cities, for a choral workshop in October. All choirs prepared for the 25th annual Christmas concert, “Venite Adoremus,” which included many familiar carols as well as newly composed pieces for the Advent and Christmas season.
