“It essentially showcases the School of Music,” said Larry Blocher, director of the School of Music. “It’s for our Troy and our Troy University families. It is designed to be traditional, but there will be a lot of variety of holiday favorites.”

The concert will begin at 7:30 p.m. and doors open at 7. The holiday celebration is the opening concert of the 2012 Middle School Southeastern United States Honor Band, so those who will be attending are asked to come early to ensure seating.
