  • Description

    Join over 300 UF performers at the Phillips Center for the Performing Arts for our annual holiday concert, Sounds of the Season.

    This year's theme, December Holidays and Sentiments, will feature an array of holiday favorites such as Ring Those Christmas Bells made famous by the icon pop/country singer Patti Page. The concert will open with the rousing traditional English carol Christmas Is Coming, where the sentiment of helping the poor is expressed. The concert will close with Georg Friedrich Händel’s Hallelujah Chorus as seen through the eyes of the African American entertainment mogul Quincy Jones. In between you will be treated to a multicultural collage representing the six holidays celebrated in December with other traditional musical expressions of Seasonal sentiments. 

    With generous support by President Fuchs, Sounds of the Season: December Holidays and Sentiments will feature more than 300 performers from UF’s Concert Choir, Women’s Chorale, Symphony Orchestra, Gospel Choir and Jazz Band augmented by area community singers of the Gainesville Master Chorale, and an array of student soloists.
