Dr. Lawrence Johnson, Chair of the Department of Music at SUU, said, "We highly encourage
the community to attend our annual Christmas Concert - this year titled 'Tis the Season - offered
by the SUU Department of Music, which showcases many of our large and small ensembles in
one event! With all the varied groups, there will surely be something for everyone as we ring in
the spirit of the season!"
This holiday concert will include performances from the Concert Choir, Opus, Symphony
Orchestra, Wind Symphony, Brass Ensemble, Woodwind Ensemble, String Ensemble, and Jazz
Band. They will feature holiday favorites such as We Wish You a Merry Christmas and Deck the
Halls. Other pieces include Masters in This Hall, Adagio and Allegro from Christmas Concerto
Op 68 No. 8, and Bob Mintzer’s Heart of the Matter.
McKenna Terry, Music Education major from Kanab, Utah, said, “My favorite piece that we are
performing is Gloria by Randol Alan Bass. 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.
This concert has something for everyone. It will be a fantastic night of music and is the perfect
way to ring in your holiday celebrations.”
