Call for performers for Dec. 3 Multicultural Christmas Concert


NATCHITOCHES – The Louisiana Folklife Center at Northwestern State University is issuing a call for performers to participate in the 12th annual Multicultural Christmas Concert, which will take place from 6-7:30 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 3.

“We are seeking participants to help celebrate diversity and the cheer of Christmas,” said Dr. Shane Rasmussen, director of the program.  “We invite performers such as singers, musicians, dancers or readers to come celebrate this joyous time of the year with the Natchitoches community.  Readings as well as public domain songs and instrumental performances, sacred or secular, which address Christmas or the Christmas season are welcome.”

This year’s concert will be a virtual event.  If interested in performing, contact the Folklife Center by Nov. 16.  All participants perform without monetary compensation.  The event is also a benefit for Cane River Children’s Services.  The event is sponsored by the Folklife Center and NSU’s Center for Inclusion and Diversity.

Due to copyright restrictions, the Folklife Center will provide a list of songs to choose from.
