LEXINGTON, Ky. (Dec. 23, 2013) – Local TV station WKYT will broadcast this year's "Celebration of Song" sing-along holiday concert featuring University of Kentucky Opera Theatre vocalists leading the community in popular carols. The concert programming will air twice on Christmas at 12:30 a.m. and again at noon Wednesday, Dec. 25, on WKYT (Insight Cable Channel 9).

 

Now in its eighth year, "Celebration of Song" is an annual concert presented by Alltech and UK Opera Theatre at the Victorian Square Atrium. The concert is conducted by Director of UK Opera Theatre Everett McCorvey and showcases the award-winning vocalists of UK Opera Theatre, as well as several other UK and community talents.

 

Joining UK Opera Theatre again for "Celebration of Song" was UK Blue Steel and the Lexington Singers’ Children’s Choir. This year's concerts also included the American Spiritual Ensemble.

 

"Celebration of Song" encourages the public to become part of the concert and sing along to a great selection of well-known seasonal songs and carols.

 

UK Opera Theatre is part of the UK School of Music at the UK College of Fine Arts. The School of Music has garnered national recognition for high-caliber education in opera, choral and instrumental music performance, as well as music education, composition, and theory and music history.
