Joyful Noises

BU holds seasonal celebrations through December 24

At Boston University, the holiday spirit means music, from the a cappella group the Allegrettos, performing tomorrow at 8 p.m. in Sleeper Auditorium at the College of General Studies, to the BUMC Holiday Choir, the all-inclusive group on the Medical Campus that sings carols for patients and staff at Boston Medical Center. There are also parties, games, and study breaks for those students and faculty who are a little too preoccupied with final exams to start feeling festive.

A list of University holiday celebrations — including a sled-decorating competition at the faculty and staff University Holiday Party — is below. Click on the links in each listing for more information, or visit the University calendar.
