We are pleased to bring you the annual Holiday Festival of Choirs, now celebrating 22 years of inspired performances for the Macomb and WIU community.  We will present two performances, each as a seamless presentation of beautiful and inspirational holiday themed choral music.  The concert features the choirs of choral graduates from the Western Illinois University School of Music along with our Western Illinois University Singers, Madrigal Singers, and Concert Choir.  Gayle Cooper will again be the Holiday Festival organist.  Audience members will join the Holiday Festival Choir on the carol sing along including our traditional singing of  "Hallelujah Chorus" from Handel's Messiah.

This year, both performances are on Saturday, December 5 with a matinee concert at 2pm and evening concert at 7:30 p.m. located at St. Paul Catholic Church, 309. West Jackson, Macomb.
