Southeast hosts vacations, seasonal events


The 101st Candle took place Monday evening at the Montgomery Auditorium.

Southeastern Oklahoma State University is celebrating the upcoming holiday season with traditions old and new.

The oldest event on campus – candlelight lighting – took place for the 101st time Monday night at the Montgomery Auditorium.

Several ensembles have performed including the Symphonic Chorus, Southeastern Chorale, SE Wind Ensemble, SHARE Children’s Chorus and a faculty string quartet.

The theme for this year, “My spirit rejoices”, is a quote from the biblical text “Magnificat”, in which Mary accepts the news of the angel. The combined choirs performed a full “Magnificat” by Antonio Vivaldi, accompanied by a string quartet, and the various ensembles presented other smaller works focusing on Mary’s story.

A number of musical groups have performed at Candlelighting.
