Poetry and lecture presentations will continue the Arts Celebration in 2022.

The beloved holiday concert is returning to Fountain Street Church as the next installment of the GVSU Arts Celebration.

“Coming Together to Celebrate the Holidays," featuring multiple orchestras and choirs, is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. December 6 at the church, 24 Fountain St. NE in downtown Grand Rapids.

Presented by both the GVSU Arts Celebration and the Department of Music, Theatre and Dance, the concert will recognize many of the countries affected by the pandemic by highlighting musical selections that are symbolic of holiday celebrations.

The selections audience members can expect to hear include Vivaldi’s “Gloria,” Handel’s “Messiah,” and the Willcocks’ settings of English carols in a sing-along version.

The event is free and open to the public. Organizers encourage people to arrive early for best seating.

Face masks will be required for audience members, organizers said.

This concert is the third event for the revamped community arts celebration, which now features events throughout the year. Poetry and lecture presentations are planned for 2022.
