Jefferson Singers Delight With Annual Winter Concert

The Jefferson Singers perform “White Star” by Thomas B. Williams and John Grecia.

To a packed house, the Jefferson Singers brought the spirit of the season to campus. Their winter concert in Ravenhill Chapel covered a wide range of repertoire, from the music of the Renaissance (“Dixit Maria ad Angelum”) to more contemporary selections like “Winter” by Tori Amos and “White Star” by Thomas B. Williams and Jefferson Singers Director John Grecia.
