David Phelps Classic Christmas
Friday, December 8th | 7:30 PM - 9:30 PM
Zurcher Auditorium; Merillat Center for the Arts
Huntington University is pleased to welcome multi-Dove and Grammy Award-winning recording artist, David Phelps, to the Merillat Center for the Arts to performs his Classic Christmas concert on Friday, December 8.
The Classic Christmas concert is one of more than a dozen Phelps and his seven-piece musical entourage will make during November and December. This musical event will be a special evening of worship and will feature many of the songs included on Phelps’ O Holy Night recording, as well as his recently released Freedom recording.
Once a childhood musical prodigy from Tomball, Texas, Phelps earned a bachelor’s degree in music from Baylor University. Since then, he has become a nationally celebrated vocalist perhaps best known as the powerful tenor for the multiple Grammy and Dove Award-winning Gaither Vocal Band. Emerging as a leading voice in contemporary Christian music, Phelps has been winning the hearts of audiences for more than two decades. He has performed at numerous prestigious venues across the globe, including the White House, New York’s Carnegie Hall and the Sydney Opera House in Australia. His electrifying voice has moved audiences from all walks of life, crossing generational and stylistic barriers.
The doors will open for the event at 7:00 p.m. with the concert beginning at 7:30 p.m. Reserved-seating tickets are $18 and $25, and VIP tickets will cost $50. VIP tickets include dinner with Huntington’s President, Dr. Sherilyn Emberton at 6:00 p.m., attendance at Phelps’ sound check and a question and answer session prior to dinner. Tickets are available by calling (260) 359-4261 or purchasing online.
