UNCP Music Department to host 11th annual Holiday Extravaganza UNCP

PEMBROKE — Faculty, staff and students of the UNC Pembroke Music Department will perform in the 11th annual Holiday Extravaganza concert at Givens Performing Arts Center on Friday, Nov. 22. 

The show starts at 8 p.m. Come early and catch the “Tuba Christmas” mini-concert  at 7:15 p.m. in front of GPAC. Tickets are $15 and are available at the GPAC Box Office. Proceeds will benefit UNCP music scholarships.  

All of the university’s ensembles and choirs will gather to perform uplifting renditions of holiday favorites. This family-friendly event also features a fun sing-along of well-known Christmas carols.

 “This is always such a tremendous performance,” said James Bass, director of GPAC. “It’s been a favorite of many of our patrons, but it’s also a favorite of ours. The talent of our students, faculty and staff is simply incredible.” 

Bass said the annual concert helps to supplement students’ musical education by raising money for music scholarships. 

“It is an extremely good performance, but it’s also a good cause because it helps make opportunities available for music students at the university,” he said.
