ORU Christmas Concert

During the past six years Oral Roberts University has donated approximately 6,000 toys to the Salvation Army through the ORU Christmas concert. The annual concert raises toys for children in need by allowing free admission with the donation of a new, unwrapped toy to the Salvation Army through the ORU Cheerleaders' “Bring Good Cheer” toy drive.

This year the annual ORU Christmas concert, titled “The Wonder that is Christmas,” will be held on Friday, December 6, 2013 in the ORU Mabee Center.

A free Christmas carnival for all ages will begin at 6:15 p.m. prior to the start of the concert. The carnival will be held on the upper level concourse and will include holiday games, hands-on activities and free pictures with Santa Claus. The free concert will begin at 7:30 p.m.

The Christmas celebration concert will feature special Christian guests Kelly Ford, Brian Nhira, Jason Swanson and the Victory and Lincoln Christian Children’s Choirs performing along with the ORU orchestra and choir.
