An Art School Quaranteam Keeps the Caroling Going at Kirkpatrick Chapel

By Christopher Benincasa, JerseyArts.com

An Art School Quaranteam Keeps the Caroling Going at Kirkpatrick Chapel

Since 1958, Christmas in Carol and Song has been an annual tradition at Rutgers University’s historic Kirkpatrick Chapel in New Brunswick. Patrick Gardner, distinguished professor of music and director of choral activities at the Mason Gross School of the Arts, has led the Rutgers Kirkpatrick Choir and the Rutgers University Glee Club for more than 25 years.

With the help of both choirs recording from home throughout the country, visual artists Camilla Tassi and Stephanie Tubiolo, and a Mason Gross student quarantine pod known as the Handy Street 8, Gardner has produced a dynamic virtual concert experience that will debut on the Mason Gross School of the Arts Facebook and YouTube pages this Saturday at 7:30pm.

We recently spoke to Patrick Gardner and three of his students about reimagining and reinventing this holiday tradition for 2020.
