Boise State Holiday Concert Tonight


We complain about how early the holidays "start" every year--Halloween candy is on store shelves in August and cardboard Valentine's Day cutouts line aisles in January. But not all early reminders are cause for an eye roll and curses against capitalism. The Boise State music department's holiday concert is an annual evening of classic Christmas tunes to help get in the true spirit of the season. This year, the Morrison Center will ring with the sounds of Boise State's Symphony Orchestra, Faculty Brass Quintet and several other ensembles. KTVB's Dee Sarton will emcee the event as the audience sings along to the likes of "Silent Night" and "Jingle Bells"--carol books will be provided--and gets wrapped up in Christmas with Tchaikovsky's Nutcracker Suite and Beethoven's "Choral Fantasy." And the concert is an opportunity to give as well as receive; proceeds benefit the Boise State Music Department Scholarship Fund.
