With over 200 students singing in the choir, about 75 students performing in the orchestra, and approximately 40 worship technology students handling lighting, sound and production, UM students are putting their education into practical experiences.

An audience totaling over 10,000, many from out of state, are expected to attend the performances that will feature a combination of classical and modern Christmas and worship music.

This year UM students will welcome to the stage the Mobile International Children’s Choir, composed of refugee children in K-6th grade, and the Saraland Early Education and Elementary School choirs.
