William Carey University will present two Christmas events in December – “Carey by Candlelight” on campus and “A Carey Christmas” at Hardy Street Baptist Church. Both showcase the work of talented students from the Winters School of Music.
“Carey Music is excited to offer the gift of Christmas music during the holidays. Our students look forward to presenting these events each year to bless our friends, family, and all of the Pine Belt. We look forward to seeing everyone this Christmas,” said Wes Dykes, dean of the Winters School of Music.
Carey by Candlelight
“Carey by Candlelight” will be Saturday, Dec. 9, at WCU-Hattiesburg. The event runs from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.
“Carey by Candlelight” is part of Downtown Hattiesburg’s “Candlelit Christmas,” marking the start of the holiday season. Guests are invited to drive through to see the Hattiesburg campus lighted by thousands of luminaries. They can also stop and enjoy live music, fellowship, free hot chocolate, cider, cookies, and s’mores. Four WCU music groups will perform: Knights of Jazz, Hub City Worship, Restoration Band, and Thomas Hall – voted “Best Local Band” in this year’s “Best of the Pine Belt” contest.
