LA GRANDE, Ore. November 15, 2016 – The Observer’s 25th annual Holiday Music Festival is coming to Eastern Oregon University with two shows set for 7:30 p.m. Saturday and 3 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 3-4 in McKenzie Theatre in Loso Hall.
Sponsored by Koza Family Dental Care, the gala event features more than 200 area performers including the Grande Ronde Symphony Orchestra, Community Symphonic Band, EOU Chamber Choir, Grande Ronde Community Chorus, EOU’s African Drumming, 45th Parallel and Fiddle ensembles and the Alleluia Bell Choir.
“This community-wide festival features traditional holiday music from around the world and marks the beginning of a wonderful season,” said Peter Wordelman, professor of music and director of EOU’s Chamber Choir.
General festival seating admission is $8 for adults and $6 for students and senior citizens. Tickets are available at Looking Glass Books downtown and at the EOU Bookstore on campus.
Advanced ticket purchase is highly recommended. All proceeds from the event go to music funds held in the EOU Foundation.
Art Center East will also sell concessions in the Loso Hall lobby during the festival to benefit the Community School of the Arts, a partnership between Art Center East and EOU that provides arts programs for children and adults.
