Posted by Lori Shull - Wednesday, November 23 2011


Tennessee Tech University’s annual choral showcase of holiday music returns to campus at 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday, Dec. 2 and 3, in Wattenbarger Auditorium.

The concert will feature new and traditional carols to start off the holiday season, according to TTU choral director Craig Zamer.

TTU choral groups will be joined by two local high schools; the Cookeville High School Choir will perform as special guests Friday night, and the Mt. Juliet High School Choir performing on Saturday night.

Tickets are $5 and can be reserved by calling 931-372-6175. They will also be available at the door.

Parking for the concert will be provided in the commuter parking lot across Dixie Avenue from the Bryan Fine Arts Building. Because TTU also is 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.
