Get into the Spirit of Holiday Nov. 27 and 28
Celebrate the magic of the holiday season with the Cultural Events Series’ presentation of VIVICI’s “Purely Christmas” Nov. 27 and 28 at Frostburg State University’s Performing Arts Center. These two evening performances, each starting at 7:30 p.m. at the Performing Arts Center, will feature festive favorites by four well-known artists and FSU’s very own University Chorale.
“Purely Christmas” brings the talents of tenor Steve Amerson, performer Laurie Gayle Stephenson and musicians Bill Cantos and Pedro Eustache to Frostburg to deliver heartwarming renditions of songs such as “Let It Snow,” “I’ll Be Home for Christmas,” “Sleigh Ride,” “Emmanuel,” “Oh Holy Night,” “Hark the Herald Angels Sing” and many more. Amerson has been featured in holiday concerts with major orchestras and chorales throughout America and Mexico, and is heard on soundtracks of more than 100 motion pictures. Stephenson starred on Broadway in Andrew Lloyd Webber’s “Phantom of the Opera,” and has been a featured soloist in the Radio City Music Hall’s famous Christmas Spectacular. Cantos is one of the most sought-after keyboards players in Los Angeles. Eustache, a Venezuelan flutist, is the featured flute and woodwind soloist for performers such as Yanni, Sir Paul McCartney and Phil Collins, and can be heard on soundtracks including the “The Lion King” and “The Passion of Christ.”
Tickets are $25 for the general public, $21 for FSU faculty and staff, $23 for children 17 and younger and $10 for FSU students.
