This December, groups of Dordt University Concert Choir students will be traveling throughout Sioux County delivering “carol-o-grams.” Each “carol-o-gram” will consist of four to five classic Christmas carols, and they can be sent to any person, family, business, or Christmas party of your choosing. A small donation for each “carol-o-gram” is appreciated, and proceeds will support the choir’s spring break tour to the Northeastern United States and Ontario, Canada. On this tour, the students will have a free day in New York City, and this project will raise funds to purchase tickets to see a Broadway musical.
“It’s good for students because they enjoy singing together, building camaraderie and spreading the good news of Christmas through song. It’s good for the community because it gives people an opportunity to send the joy of Christmas to someone else in a unique and beautiful way,” says Ryan Smit, director of choirs at Dordt University.
