The Whitworth University Christmas Festival Concert has become a tradition in the greater Spokane area. The 33rd edition of this annual holiday performance, entitled "I Look from Afar..." focuses its attention on gazing beyond the present to find what is yet to come. The concert features music and inspirational readings that celebrate the joy and mystery of the Christmas season. Performing ensembles include all three of the University's choral ensembles, The Whitworth Choir, Women's Choir, and Men's Chorus, along with a complement of student instrumentalists from the University's Department of Music. The concert concludes in a candlelight setting and is complete with hymns and carols for all to sing.
