Southern Utah Uniersity’s music department will present a holiday concert Dec. 8 at 7:30 p.m. in Cedar City’s Heritage Center Theatre. The concert will include performances from the university’s concert choir, Opus, symphony orchestra, wind symphony, brass ensemble, woodwind ensemble, string ensemble, and jazz band. They will perform holiday music such as “We Wish You a Merry Christmas” and “Deck the Halls.” Other pieces include William Morris’ “Masters in This Hall,” “Adagio and Allegro” from Archangelo Corelli’s Christmas Concerto, and Bob Mintzer’s “Heart of the Matter.”
“My favorite piece that we are performing is ‘Gloria’ by Randol Alan Bass,” said Said McKenna Terry, a music education major from Kanab. “This will be our big piece to finish off the concert and will feature the wind symphony, orchestra, and various choirs. It is so rewarding and almost magical to put something like this together with all of the ensembles in the department of music.”
Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for students and children. Southern Utah University faculty, staff, and students enter free with a valid ID card. Faculty and staff IDs are allowed one guest.
