Christmas concerts showcase Corban talent
The weather outside may have been frightful, but inside the Psalm Performing Arts Center on Corban’s Salem campus on Dec. 3 and 4, it was musical delight.
Students from different disciplines and music styles joined forces for a concert that raised the Christmas spirit for hundreds of attendees. Adjunct Band Director Brian Griffiths said the performance was not only a way to bring glory to Jesus, but also give the students an opportunity to hone their skills and work with others.
“One of the remarkable things about this concert was the number of combined works,” Griffiths said. “It required each individual student to prepare substantially more music than they otherwise would.”
The Psalm Center stage was filled to capacity with stringed and wind instruments, percussions and more. Musicians were well dressed in tuxedos and formal dresses as they gave all they had to their music. Griffiths said he is still awed at how the annual concert continues to improve each year in both talent and attendees.
“Students were willing to sacrifice their time and energy knowing they were serving Christ and getting the audience in a mind of worship,” Griffiths said. “What happened is nothing short of glory to God.”
