Over a thousand will flock to the University of Adelaide’s Bonython Hall onWednesday 18 December to welcome in the festive season at the annual Carols on Campus celebration.
In the tradition of ‘Carols from King’s’ at Cambridge University, the free community event will feature a full academic procession, choristers from the Elder Conservatorium of Music and the magnificent Bonython Hall organ.
Commencing at 7.00pm, the one-hour program will include Christmas music, traditional carols and a wide range of Christmas readings delivered by University staff.
The evening’s host, Paul Duldig, Vice-President (Services and Resources), says Carols on Campus has become one of the most anticipated events on the University’s calendar.
“Carols on Campus provides the ideal opportunity for the University to celebrate this special time of year with the community, while showcasing our stunning Bonython Hall and staff readers and student musicians.
“This is a relatively new event for the University, only in its fourth year, however it is already highly popular, with more than 1000 people attending last year. This year’s Carols on Campus promises to be even more spectacular.”
Everyone is welcome to attend. For those who can't make it to Bonython Hall, it will be live streamed at http://www.adelaide.edu.au/carols/ .
Those wishing to donate to children in need are welcome to bring an unwrapped present to be placed under the University's Christmas Giving Tree in Bonython Hall. The gifts will be distributed by The Smith Family.
