UCA Plays At Spokane's Fox Theater
On Saturday, Jan. 10, Upper Columbia Academy performed their postponed Christmas concert, A Savior From on High, in the Fox Theatre in Spokane, Wash.
Although rescheduled, the concert attracted more than 1,000 people. The performance featured the concert band and various instrument ensembles, the full choir and UCA's two elite choirs: Choraliers and Octet. It also gave students the opportunity to perform in a professional concert hall.
The Fox is Spokane's pride and joy, a masterpiece of architecture and décor, and a prestigious venue for performing arts. UCA charged no admission, offering the concert as a Christmas gift to the community.
The concert was originally scheduled for Dec. 20, 2008, but was delayed after a winter storm buried the Spokane area under a record 19 inches of snow in 24 hours. UCA released students for Christmas break three days early out of concern for their safety and as roads became increasingly treacherous. Throughout December snowfall in the Spokane area accumulated to a record 66 inches.
