The Southwestern Oklahoma State University Department of Music invites the western Oklahoma community to celebrate the season with the first Holiday Collage Concert on Sunday, December 6 on the Weatherford campus.

The event will take place at 3 p.m. in the Fine Arts Center on the SWOSU campus. Admission is $5 with all proceeds going to scholarships for students. There is free admission for SWOSU students and students under the age of 18.

Fun for all ages, the program will showcase arrangements of joyful holiday favorites performed by the SWOSU large ensembles, including the Wind Symphony, Symphonic Band, Jazz Ensemble, Southwestern Singers and Orchestra. Solo performances and small chamber ensembles will highlight music faculty and outstanding student soloists in works ranging from a soprano solo, flute quartet, piano duo and tuba/euphonium ensemble.

The holiday cheer will continue following the performance with a cookie and beverage reception in the lobby of the Fine Arts Center. All concert attendees are invited to enjoy holiday treats and pose for pictures with Santa.
