Join the Feast of Lights at Saddleback College

Posted By CotoBlogzz

Rancho Santa Margarita, CA –  A Feast of Lights comes to Saddleback college on December 7th and 8th in the McKinney Theatre. The chorale ensembles, under the direction of Dr. Scott Farthing, and the symphony orchestra, under the direction of Yorgos Kouritas, come together for this very popular holiday program of vocal and orchestral music for all ages to enjoy. 

A Feast of Lights has been a holiday tradition for over 25 years--perhaps one of the oldest traditions at Saddleback College. This year’s festive program will highlight both old and new holiday favorites for chorus and orchestra. A traditional wassail and hors d’oeuvres will be provided by Saddleback College’s exquisite Culinary Arts program.

Dates are Saturday, December 7th at 2:00 and 5:00 p.m. and Sunday, December 8th at 2:00 and 5:00 p.m. Tickets are $20 general admission; $15 students/seniors and can be purchased by calling the ticket office at 949-582-4656 or online at

The Music Department has established a comprehensive program which is considered to be one of the finest in California: a complete lower-division curriculum for transferring music majors, numerous performance groups, private and group lessons, a full concert series with faculty and guest artists, and general music courses. The nationally-recognized faculty is dedicated to performance and to teaching in all areas such as vocal, instrumental, jazz, guitar, and piano.  Other music classes include harmony, musicianship, composition, history, and appreciation of western art music, rock, jazz and world. The new Popular Music program offers classes in Songwriting, Multi-Track Recording, Intro to the Music Industry, and Commercial Music Ensemble.
