ATHENS, W.Va. – Concord University is celebrating the season with the annual Holiday Open House at University Point on Tuesday, Dec. 2, 2014 from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.

Guests will be treated to an evening of holiday music, refreshments and festive fun. The community is invited to join in the celebration. There is no admission charge.

Concord University student vocalists and musicians, including the ConChords and the CU brass and jazz ensembles, are providing entertainment. Performances by these groups will be held in the Wilkes Family Chapel from 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.

Adding to the charm of the evening is the Holiday Hall of Trees, which will be located in the fellowship hall. Each of these unique trees will feature the decorating talents of Concord University students, staff and faculty representing various departments and organizations on campus.
