Cyprus International University Hosts Christmas Carol ConcertThe CIU Choir began the evening with classic Christmas songs such as “The First Noel”, “O Holy Night”, “O Come All Ye Faithful” and “Ding Dong Merrily on High”, which truly put the audience in a festive mood. In addition to the group performance, some members of the choir performed solo. The choir was joined by two students from Eastern Mediterranean University and Near East University.

Following the CIU Choir was the CIU dance group. Though the dance group had already performed their routine in the Rectors Office the day before, they were present to give a repeat performance for their peers to Mariah Carey’s “All I Want for Christmas Is You.” The performance was filled with energy and high flying stunts.

Along with all the great performances that evening, it was announced that the CIU Choir would be moving to their own Cultural Centre in CIU, though an exact date was not given.
