On December 7 and 8, the University of Utah's School of Music will present its "Choirs & Orchestra Holiday Concert" at Libby Gardner Concert Hall at 7:30 p.m. each night.

The shows will feature yhe University of Utah Chamber Choir, A Cappella Choir and Women's Chorus, as well as the Philharmonia Chamber Orchestra and the Harp Ensemble.

I never knew they had a harp ensemble. Pretty rad.

The Women's Chorus, directed by Jessica Napoles, will perform excerpts from Benjamin Britten's "Ceremony of Carols," accompanied by the Harp Ensemble, directed by Cathy Clayton.

The Chamber Choir and A Cappella Choir will present excerpts from Bach's Christmas Oratoria, directed by Eric Schmidt and Sonja Sperling, accompanied by the Philharmonia Chamber Orchestra, directed by Robert Baldwin.

The ensembles will also perform "Christmas Carol," arranged and conducted by Barlow Bradford.

GA tickets are $10, with $6 tickets for non-Ute students and seniors. Utes are free. And I mean a member of the student body, not a member of the tribe.
