Multilingual Caroling a Tradition in Bethany

One of the many treasures of Bethany is the annual singing of carols.  Once again this year, on Dec. 12 Bethany faculty and students from the German and Spanish Clubs delighted the Bethany community with Christmas caroling at several homes in the town of Bethany.

In addition, for the first time ever, these two language clubs were invited to perform at a Christmas Caroling Concert at the Bethany Community Center for the greater Bethany community.  This wonderful cultural event was sponsored by Bethany Mayor Jay Eisenhauer and Bethany’s Town Council.  Refreshments were provided by the town for the attendees and participants.  This all-student group of carolers was led by professors of world languages and cultures Dr. Harald Menz, who played guitar, and Dr. Joseph Lovano, together with Gerhard Schultze and Chelsea Sebetich, the German and Spanish Club Presidents respectively.  The group of two dozen sang Christmas carols in English, French, Italian, Latin, and Spanish for all to enjoy.
