Willamette University, Students at the Mill Stream

Holiday gatherings in Portland and Los Angeles

As the holidays approach, please consider joining us at either of the following West Coast events, both of which have been hits in recent years. Now's the time to plan!

Los Angeles: Disney Holiday Concert and Gathering | Dec. 8

Ring in the holiday season at Walt Disney Concert Hall with a festival of carols sung by the one of the greatest choirs in the world! You'll hear many favorites, along with Rutter's popular and festive Gloria.

With the iconic Disney Hall pipe organ -- played by WU alumnus John West '73 -- coupled with the brass and the entire Los Angeles Master Chorale, this will be pure holiday magic. Sold out two years in a row, this L.A. holiday tradition is an extraordinary opportunity.

Join us for a private, WU-alumni-only guided tour of the iconic Walt Disney Concert Hall before the show. A docent will lead us through much of the interior space and throughout the gardens while presenting the highlights of this architecturally significant building.
