The Choir will also perform selections such as Joy to the World arranged by Frank Kuykendall and traditional Christmas melodies. The Dillard University Octet will perform Children Go Where I Send Thee, arranged by Davenport. Each year, students from all over the country come together to form the Dillard University Concert Choir. Since 1935, Dillard’s Concert Choir has developed a brilliant and staggering reputation.
