Update: Watch the entire program on demand.
Christmas is just a few days away, and the number of Christmas specials on TV is impressive, as usual. This year, you can add BJU’s Christmas concert to the list.
At 7 p.m. Dec. 24, tune in to South Carolina’s public broadcasting network (SCETV) to watch A Very Merry Christmas.
The program is presented by the BJU Symphony Orchestra, choirs and soloists, including violinist David Kim, concertmaster of The Philadelphia Orchestra. The song list includes favorites such as “Winter Wonderland,” “O Little Town” and “Sleigh Ride.”
The telecast showcases music as “a huge unifier on our campus,” said Michael Moore, chair of the Division of Music and director of the BJU Symphony Orchestra. The orchestra and choir members are not only music students. “You’ll see music majors side by side with other students from the Schools of Fine Arts and Communication, Business, Education, Health Professions, Religion and the College of Arts and Science.
“I’m most excited for the students who put so much work into bringing the music to life. It’s nice to see their hard work recognized in this way.”
Check local TV listings for your SCETV channel. The program will also be available online from 8 p.m. Dec. 24 through New Year’s Day.
Added Moore: “I think (this program is) a great way to share with the general public the good news of the season … We hope this will be a blessing to our friends and family this Christmas.”
