Merry Christmas From the Wittmen Crew

Sit back and enjoy this 15 minute Christmas musical delight, featuring Wittenberg University’s premier all-male A Capella choir, The Wittmen Crew.

Now entering its third decade, The Wittmen Crew entertains crowds both on campus and off, singing for nonprofit organizations, college events, private parties, and for the first time, in the TV-44 studio.

2018-2019 president, Elijah Runk, recalled his days as a Bluffton High School student, singing at TV-44 for the annual Holiday Music Festival, and pursued an opportunity to bring his fellow college singing mates back to his high school roots. The result is 4 songs of harmony, talent, spunk, and good old-fashioned Christmas fun.

The Wittmen Crew believes in the value of the arts, and enjoys using their talents to impact others in a positive way. Runk says, for some, it’s the art of being musical. For others, it’s the art of experiencing and enjoying the music. The Wittmen Crew hopes to provide you a little boost to your Christmas with these songs.
