Local residents are invited to join Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute students, faculty, and staff for the Institute’s annual holiday concert at 3 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 15. This year’s performance, which will be led by Institute conductor Nicholas DeMaison, is an invitation for people in the campus community and the greater Capital Region community to “Rejoice in This Place!” The concert, sponsored by the Office of the President, will be a celebration of Rensselaer and its world-class performance venue, the Curtis R. Priem Experimental Media and Performing Arts Center (EMPAC).
“Music is very much a part of our history and traditions. At Rensselaer, we believe the blending of voices from many disciplines is the path to discoverywhether in the lab or on the stageand can lead to delightful moments of insight and awe,” said Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute President Shirley Ann Jackson. “We invite the community to come to hear our magnificent students perform in this magical venue.”
