Advent at EMU

Advent Greetings from EMU!


“Carol of the Bells,” performed by EMU instrumentalists in an original arrangement, sets a tone for centennial celebrations.

A Centennial Christmas…

We celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ, Prince of Peace, with profound awareness of the joys and sorrows in our world. The birth of Christ brings us hope as a Christian community.

This year we celebrate EMU's Centennial and our Christmas online greeting features the familiar "Carol of Bells" tune in an original arrangement by music major Earnest Kiah  of Portsmouth, Virginia.  Other performers are Stanley Kavchak, bass guitar, Matej Gligorevic,  lead guitar, Bruce Cypress, percussion.
