Matt Wertz and Ben Rector brought the Christmas spirit to Belmont University on Dec. 7 by performing an assortment of holiday jingles and popular originals.
Wertz played tunes featured on his freshly released holiday album entitled “Snow Globe.” Rector revealed a never heard, yet to be demoed, intimate acoustic song to the sold out crowd in the Massey Performing Arts Center. Dave Barnes made a surprise appearance during the evening, joining Wertz and Rector in Christmas Carols. Andrew Ripp also jumped on stage, accompanying Rector in a groovy rendition of “Silent Night.”
The show was a success, a proper introduction to the holiday season and quite possibly the first of an ongoing holiday concert tradition brought to us by the Mike Curb College of Entertainment and Music Business, Student Activities, and Student Activities Program Board.
