The School of Music announces the Fourth Annual Holiday Gala featuring music from various traditions performed by soloists and ensembles from the School of Music. The choirs, jazz ensemble, band and orchestra, as well as a host of chamber groups, will perform a wide array of holiday music of many traditions and styles.
This year there will be two performances of the Holiday Gala. On Saturday, Dec. 6 at 7 p.m. audiences can attend a full-length concert with reception, and Sunday, Dec. 7 at 3 p.m. the School of Music will present a shorter concert for families and children. It is rumored that Santa Claus may take a break from his hectic schedule for a brief visit to the Sunday concert.
