Advent at Visitation: An Angel's Perspective
Start the Christmas season off in a very special way at a musical and dramatic telling of an Advent story on Sunday, December 2, at 2 p.m. in Visitation’s Commers Gymnasium. Enjoy performances by the Middle School Orchestra, VISTA Orchestra, Eighth-Grade Pops, Middle School VISTA Choir, Vis Choirs, VISTA Choir and VISTA In-Pulse.
This musical event is a creation of the Visitation Middle and Upper School music programs and VISTA Productions. Wendy Short-Hays has developed a story in a radio-show style of Advent at Visitation through the eyes of the angel statue which stands outside the Upper School Commons. Our angel will share the many wonderful service projects, events and other special activities that take place at our school during the Advent season.
As always, this performance is free and open to the public.
