The Lawn is lit, exams are nearly finished and many Wahoos are looking forward to a holiday season spent with family and friends. University of Virginia President Teresa A. Sullivan sent them off with one last musical greeting, courtesy of the University Singers, in the form of the video above.
Sullivan’s virtual holiday cards have become an annual tradition at UVA, featuring a rotating cast of talented student music groups. Last year, two a cappella groups – Remix and the Hullabahoos – performed a medley of seasonal tunes on the Lawn. This year, it was the University Singers’ turn to celebrate, this time in the newly restored Rotunda. Ringing the festively decorated Dome Room, the group, directed by associate professor and choral music director Michael Slon, performed the University’s official alma mater, “Virginia Hail, All Hail!”
Enjoy the video and happy holidays!
