Celebrate the Season at Duke’s Employee Holiday Concert

Staff and faculty are invited to festivities in Duke University Chapel on Dec. 5.

Staff and faculty are invited to Duke's Employee Holiday Concert in Duke University Chapel on Dec. 5.

Join the Duke community in ringing in the holidays with live music, food and special treats on Dec. 5.

The Employee Holiday Concert will be from 11-11:30 a.m. at Duke University Chapel. The Raleigh Jazz Orchestra will play seasonal classics like “Jingle Bell Rock” and “My Favorite Things” from “The Sound of Music.” A reception on the Chapel Quad with sandwiches, hot cider and desserts follows the performance.  

“What better way to celebrate the spirt of the holidays and the spirt of Duke than by coming together to enjoy time with friends and colleagues,” said Antwan Lofton, assistant vice president of Staff & Labor Relations and Duke Human Resources. “For Duke, this is a great time for us to pause and show appreciation to our employees for the time and dedication they’ve spent though the year.”

At the Chapel entrance, employees attending the event can enter a drawing to win four tickets to “Disney on Ice: Dare to Dream” on Dec. 9 at Raleigh’s PNC Arena. The winner will be notified by phone or email after the reception.

A surprise holiday gift will also be given to the first 175 attendees.

Employees are encouraged to walk, take the bus or bike to the event. Find campus bus routes and real-time bus tracking on the Parking & Transportation website.
