Christmas in Christ Chapel

Posted on December 10th, 2008 by

Gustavus is an institution rich with traditions.  One of these annual traditions is Christmas in Christ Chapel, fondly referred to as CinCC.  CinCC is a fantastic musical performance that combines efforts from people  who participate in  choir, orchestra, brass, handbells, organ, dance, and more.  The concert really is a joyous celebration of the holidays.

Nearly 350 student, faculty, and staff members bring CinCC to life each year.  As the name suggests, CinCC is held in the Chapel, and a significant amount of work goes into its decoration.  Each year, I am stunned by the artistic design of the room.

This year, CinCC took place between December 5th and December 7th.  During that time, 5 shows were given, and approximately 1,200 people attended each performance.

CinCC is a remarkable opportunity for students who are in band, orchestra, or choir.  It is a true showcase of their talents.  The Gustavus campus is absolutely packed during CinCC weekend, and it is exciting to have such a premiere musical showcase occur at Gustavus.
