The Box Office has tickets available for this year’s UST Christmas concerts, "Voices of Angels, Voices of Hope," presented by the university Music Department.

Celebrating the seasons of Advent and Christmas, the St. Thomas student musical ensembles will present religious, traditional and contemporary music and readings. The Concert Choir, Liturgical Choir and other vocal and instrumental ensembles will perform.

Although the concert is free, tickets are required, and a limited number of tickets will be distributed for this year’s concerts.

Tickets for students, staff and faculty, are available in the Box Office beginning at noon today for the 8:15 p.m. concerts on Friday, Dec. 6, and Saturday, Dec. 7, in the Chapel of St. Thomas Aquinas.

Students, staff and faculty will be issued two complimentary tickets per person, and these will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis. Please bring your St. Thomas ID when you come to pick up your tickets.

Minneapolis campus faculty, staff and students may pick up concert ticket-request forms in the Life-Work Center in Terrence Murphy Hall. Complete the form and send it to the Box Office, which will fill requests on a first-come, first-served basis.

The Box Office is open from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday and from noon to 3 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.

Because of this concert’s popularity and the limited number of tickets, a dress rehearsal also will be free and open to the public. It will be held at 7 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 5, in the Chapel of St. Thomas Aquinas, and tickets are not required.
