CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas – The Department of Music at Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi held the 13th Annual Holiday Gala Concert on Friday, Dec. 6, in the Performing Arts Center (PAC).

“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.”

Children and families enjoyed pre-concert festivities in the PAC lobby, which included Christmas carols, a coloring station, and pictures with Frosty the Snowman. The concert featured students and faculty in a wide variety of holiday favorites for the whole family, including familiar Christmas carols and new classics. A performance of Vince Guaraldi’s, “Linus and Lucy” by the University Percussion Ensemble received several rounds of applause and was a highlight of the evening. All proceeds from the concert will benefit Music Department scholarships.
