Holiday hymns at the Mount

December 10, 2013

Newburgh, NY -

The Mount Saint Mary College choir, joined by members of the St. Philip’s Church Choir from Garrison, NY, lifted their voices to the heavens at the college’s annual Christmas Vespers music program: a service of nine lessons with carols.

Professor Durward Entrekin, arts and letters, serves as director of both groups.

This year marks the return of Vespers to the Chapel of the Most Holy Rosary, which was closed last season for the Dominican Center’s ongoing transformation into a 21st century library/learning commons. Students will be able to enjoy the new library in January 2014.
