Western Carolina University student and faculty musicians and vocalists will join with the Smoky Mountain High School Show Choir, the Western Carolina Community Chorus and the Western Carolina Civic Orchestra in presenting the annual “Sounds of the Season” fundraising concert at 3 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 4, at WCU’s John W. Bardo Fine and Performing Arts Center.

All proceeds from the event will be used to provide scholarships for WCU music students. “With recent cuts from the state Legislature, the School of Music has only about two-thirds of the scholarship funds it had four years ago, so the funds raised from this concert are critical to the success of our students and the many wonderful live programs we have throughout the year,” said Will Peebles, director of the School of Music.

WCU ensembles taking part in the concert include the Concert Choir and University Chorus, Wind Ensemble, Jazz Band, Smoky Mountain Brass Quintet and Early Music Ensemble. Other WCU musicians will be featured on clarinet, flute, percussion, angklung and saxophone.

The one-and-a-half-hour program will include an intermission and a visit from Santa Claus.

Tickets are $15 for the general public; $10 for WCU faculty and staff, and seniors; and $5 for students and children. Tickets are available at the door or in advance by calling the Bardo Center box office at (828)227-2479.

For more general information, contact the School of Music at (828)227-7242.
