The UNC Pembroke Music Department is celebrating the gift of music with the 14th Holiday Extravaganza, an annual concert event to raise money for music scholarships.

The concert will be held on Dec. 2 at 7:30 p.m. at Givens Performing Arts Center.

Tickets are $15 for adults, UNCP faculty/staff/alumni are $10, and $5 for students. For group pricing, call the GPAC Box Office. Proceeds from the concert help to supplement students’ musical education by raising money for music scholarships.

“We hope this year’s concert will be bigger and better than ever,” said James Bass, executive director of GPAC. “It’s been a favorite of many of our patrons, and we’re looking forward to a post-Covid audience and a more robust experience. This concert truly is a gift to our audience.”

The Holiday Extravaganza showcases the university’s faculty, staff, and student musicians, performing cherished holiday classics. This family-friendly event also features a fun sing-along of well-known Christmas carols.
