WCU musicians gear up for ‘Sounds of the Season’

The leftover Halloween goodies might be still sitting in the candy bowl, but at Western Carolina University it’s already beginning to sound a lot like Christmas.

That’s because WCU’s music students and faculty are getting ready for their annual “Sounds of the Season” holiday concert, and tickets are on sale now.

The popular holiday event will be presented by Western Carolina’s School of Music at 3 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 5, in the concert hall of the Fine and Performing Arts Center.

The concert will feature performances by WCU’s Wind Ensemble, Jazz Ensemble, Concert Choir, Smoky Mountain Brass Quintet, Flute Ensemble, Early Music Ensemble, Saxophonic Quartet, Clarinet Ensemble, Faculty Woodwind Quintet and Angklung Ensemble.

Ticket prices are $15 for adults; $5 for children and students; and $10 for senior citizens (ages 60 and over) and WCU faculty and staff.
