Celebration of Syracuse University’s 150th anniversary with a special program of music and spoken word featuring students and ensembles from the College of Visual and Performing Arts.

The student choirs will perform two major works commissioned for the University: a reprise of Joe Downing’s Celebration (2019) and Craig Phillips’ “Ye Shall Know the Truth,” which was commissioned for the 75th anniversary of the chapel.

Additionally, the choirs will also be performing (and encouraging audience participation on) a number of old Syracuse University songs, i.e. Alma Mater, Chapel hymn, Saltine Warrior, Crouse Chimes, and more. This will be fun for alumni, students, and the entire Orange family!
