Indiana University of Pennsylvania will celebrate the holidays with its annual tree-lighting ceremony Dec. 4 at 4:45 p.m. on the East Porch of John Sutton Hall.
The ceremony is free and open to the community.
The event will include music by the IUP Chorale and Chorus, directed by Ryan Beeken; the East Pike and Eisenhower elementary school vocal ensembles, directed by Debbie Sasala; and the IUP Brass Ensemble, directed by Christian Dickinson.
The IUP Chorale will perform ““Hark the Herald Angels Sing!” and the Chorus will perform “Candlelight Carol.” The elementary school vocal ensembles will sing “Sixty Million Snowflakes” and “The Hap-Hap-Happiest Season.”
Alyssa Colen, a fifth-grader at East Pike Elementary School, will flip the switch to light the trees.
Seasonal refreshments will be served in the Blue Room on the first floor of Sutton Hall, immediately following the ceremony.
