By Staff | Nov 26, 2010

The Friends of Music annual Holiday Gala concert will once again offer two performances at the Frank Center Arts Center on the campus of Shepherd University, a 7:30 p.m. performance on Dec. 4 and a matinee at 3 p.m. on Dec. 5.

The annual tradition will feature the SU Wind Symphony, Chamber Singers, Camerata Singers, Jazz Ensemble and the Masterworks Chorale performing their holiday best. The Saturday evening concert will be followed by a reception at Cress Creek Country Club in Shepherdstown.

On Dec. 9, the Canadian Brass Quintet takes the stage to fill the center with their world-famous sounds thanks to the generosity of Bowles Rice. The Canadian Brass Quintet tours the world most of the year and has performed with major symphony orchestras in the U.S., Canada, Europe and Japan.

“The Holiday Gala has become a favorite part of Christmas in Shepherdstown. We are thrilled to bring a wide variety of holiday music to our stage to kick off the season.,” said Mark McCoy, chairman of the SU Department of Music, in a press release.

The Friends of Music is a non-profit organization that promotes musical excellence by supporting music programs and education at SU and by enriching the community through the presentation of outstanding musical performances and opportunities for music education.
