CLAREMONT CHAMBER CHOIR
The Chamber Choir of the Joint Music Program of Claremont McKenna, Harvey Mudd, Pitzer, and Scripps Colleges is an auditioned ensemble of 22 voices. Their program at the Athenaeum will include J.S. Bach's motet "Lobet den Herrn" (Praise the Lord), Arvo Part's work "an den wassern zu babel sassen wir und weinten" (By the waters of Babylon we sat down and wept, Psalm 137), Morton Laurisen's motet "O nata lux" (Born of light), as well as holiday favorites. The Claremont Chamber Choir is conducted by Charles W. Kamm, associate professor of music.
This event is being held in conjunction with the CCEs holiday toy drive, and we kindly request the participation of all guests. Unwrapped toys will be collected in the Athenaeum lobby before the dinner. If more convenient, donations of money will also be accepted. Bringing holiday cheer to the children in residence at the Loma Linda Childrens Hospital is an important part of CMCs outreach to the community.
