November 25, 2013

Holiday Gala 1

CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas – The Department of Music at Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi will present the 13th Annual Holiday Gala Concert on Friday, Dec. 6, at 7:30 p.m. in the Performing Arts Center.

Children and families are invited to the pre-concert festivities in the lobby, which begin at 6:30 p.m., and will include Christmas carols, a coloring station, and pictures with Frosty the Snowman.

“Every year, the students and faculty in the Music Department at Texas A&M-Corpus Christi look forward to the Holiday Gala,” said Dr. Matthew McClung, Associate Professor of Music. “After months of serious study, it’s wonderful to kick back at the end of the semester and have an enjoyable evening of favorite holiday songs, performed by our choirs, bands, orchestra, and other ensembles. The concert always includes a few surprises.”

The concert will feature students and faculty in a wide variety of holiday favorites for the whole family, including familiar Christmas carols and new classics.

Tickets are $10 for adults, $5 for students, and free for children 10 and younger. All proceeds from the concert will benefit Music Department scholarships. To purchase tickets, call 361.825.2787, click HERE, or purchase at the door the night of the event. For more information, call 361.825.3756.
