Free 2012 UE Holiday Pops Concert set for Tuesday | Arts & Culture
The Department of Music at the University of Evansville will host its 33rd annual Holiday Pops concert next week. This festive celebration of the holiday season will begin at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, December 4 at the Victory Theatre in downtown Evansville. The concert is free and open to the public.
Holiday Pops brings together ensembles and soloists to perform holiday favorites. The evening includes performances by the University’s choirs, orchestra, and wind and jazz ensembles.
This year’s program features around 190 University of Evansville students and five faculty members performing sacred and secular musical selections, including “I’ll Be Home for Christmas,” “Sleigh Ride,” Ralph Vaughan Williams’ “Fantasia on Greensleeves,” and music from Tchaikovsky’s “The Nutcracker Suite.” The concert will conclude with an audience sing-along of favorite Christmas carols.
“Every year, it’s a joy to see talented students share their love of music with the Evansville community by performing in the Holiday Pops concert,” said Thomas Josenhans, chair of the Department of Music. “The collaborative efforts of UE students and faculty make this performance a local favorite every holiday season.”
