UTD’s 27th Annual Holiday Sing Celebrates
Christmas from Around the World on Dec. 7


RICHARDSON, Texas (Oct. 28, 2003) - The University of Texas at Dallas (UTD) Rising Stars Series will present UTD's 27th annual Holiday Sing, the university's longest running cultural tradition, on Sunday, Dec. 7 in the University Theatre. Admission is free, but because of the popularity of this annual holiday event, it is recommended that patrons arrive early.

This year's theme, Christmas from Around the World, will feature carols originating from England, France, Germany, Spain, the Netherlands, Italy and Bohemia. The Children's Concert at 2:30 p.m. will include sing-along songs and a special visit by Santa Claus. The Traditional Concert at 7:30 p.m. will feature the UTD Chamber Singers, UTD Chorale and the Symphonic Brass Quintet, all directed by Kathryn Evans, as well as special Christmas readings. The audience will be invited to sing along with traditional carols and the Hallelujah chorus from the "Messiah."

The Holiday Sing began at UTD 27 years ago with a simple invitation to the university's neighbors to visit the campus for a special event. Since then, the concert has become a favorite tradition for residents of Richardson, Dallas and surrounding areas.
