As in the past, this year’s Glorious Sounds of the Season scholarship fundraising concert is an exciting event that includes individual musical acts representing every facet of the Tell School of music. Over 250 faculty and students perform (vocalists and instrumentalists) in large ensembles, small ensembles, commercial groups, solo acts and everything in between. The presentation is in a “surround sound” format with performers stationed throughout the hall. The music is continuous, with rapid-fire transitions between numbers controlled with lighting cues and continuous movement. Without intermission or applause between selections, the total length of the show is less than 90 minutes.

All profits from this production are deposited directly into an account that benefits student scholarships for returning students and new recruits, as well as Tell School of Music program development.

The non-stop music includes large and small performing groups.

“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,” says Dr. Jeffrey Gemmell, associate professor and coordinator of choral studies for the Tell School of Music. “The energy and delightful pacing are guaranteed to get you ready for the holiday season”
