What better way to usher in the festive holiday spirit than with the 18th annual performance of the “Glorious Sounds of the Season.” Presented by more than 250 talented students and faculty from MU’s Tell School of Music, this remarkable fundraiser is not just a concert; it’s an immersive musical experience that captivates the soul.

“Glorious Sounds of the Season” isn’t your typical holiday concert. It’s a musical kaleidoscope, a harmonious blend of traditional holiday favorites, and a diverse selection of world music. What sets it apart is the format—a seamless, non-stop performance. There’s no applause between selections, creating an uninterrupted flow of music that keeps you engaged from start to finish.

One of the hallmarks of this event is the incredible diversity of musical acts. Over 250 faculty and students, including vocalists and instrumentalists, create a musical tapestry representing every Tell School of Music facet. You’ll witness the full spectrum of musical talent, from large ensembles to small groups, commercial bands, and solo performers.

Imagine being surrounded by music, with performers strategically stationed throughout the hall. This “surround sound” format immerses the audience in a unique auditory experience. The transitions between performances are seamless, guided by lighting cues and continuous movement. With no intermission or applause between selections, the entire show lasts less than 90 minutes, leaving you in awe of the musical journey you’ve just embarked upon.

“Glorious Sounds of the Season” isn’t just about celebrating music and nurturing future talent. All proceeds from this production go directly into a fund dedicated to student scholarships and Tell School of Music program development. This support benefits returning students and recruits, ensuring that the legacy of musical excellence continues to thrive at MU.

Dr. Jeffrey Gemmell, associate professor and coordinator of choral studies for the Tell School of Music, encapsulates the spirit of this event: “The concert promises to be ‘glorious’ on every level, and we hope people feel comfortable attending this significant event to support the Tell School of Music. The energy and delightful pacing will prepare you for the holiday season.”
