Deborah Brent, AVP of Local Enrollment Services and Communications, represented the VIU Executive Team at this year’s “Christmas Cantata” VIP Reception on September 19th. The reception preceded the performance held at the Eagle Arena on George Mason University’s campus. Christmas Cantata is a musical performance featuring the Gracias Choir. The Gracias Christmas Cantata is a show-stopping musical experience that began in 2011 and continues this year in 25 cities throughout North America. Supporting the mission of the International Youth Fellowship organization mirrors VIU’s mission of embracing cultural diversity and providing educational opportunities for the youth of the world. VIU students and staff attended the free performance which put us in the Christmas spirit. We look forward to continuing our support of the incredible work done by International Youth Fellowship that benefits the personal, spiritual, and professional development of the youth around the world.
