TTU arts roundup: Candlelight Christmas Concert features TTU Choirs

Posted by Lori Shull - Wednesday, November 23 2011

Choirs from Tennessee Tech University and area high schools will offer up some cheerful holiday voices at performances Friday and Saturday, Dec. 2 and 3, for the annual Candlelight Christmas Concert.

The Cookeville High School Choir will perform as special guests Friday night, with the Mt. Juliet High School Choir performing as special guests on Saturday night.

Tickets are $5 and can be reserved by calling 931-372-6175. Both performances are at 7:30 p.m. in the Wattenbarger Auditorium located in the Bryan Fine Arts Building.

Parking for the concert will be provided in the commuter parking lot across Dixie Avenue from the Bryan Fine Arts Building. Because TTU is also hosting the Tennessee Secondary School Athletic Association's football championships on those dates, concert attendees should make sure they arrive early. Be sure to tell the parking attendant that you are attending the Candlelight Christmas Concert.
