Concordia's annual Christmas Concert tradition returned to the Renée and Henry Segerstrom Concert Hall to celebrate the Christmas season with the voices and instruments of Concordia University Irvine. Concordia’s critically-acclaimed choirs, handbells and orchestra shared glad tidings of great joy--Christ was born to save! The theme for 2021, "Repeat the Sounding Joy!" showcased more than 200 performers from eight vocal and instrumental performing ensembles under the masterful direction of Dr. Michael Busch and Dr. Jeff Held.
A new made-for-TV special episode of “Repeat the Sounding Joy: A Concordia Christmas” was filmed for PBS in the Borland-Manske Center and aired during the week of Christmas.
