LA GRANDE, Ore. (EOU) – The Observer’s 24th Annual Holiday Music Festival is coming to McKenzie Theatre in Loso Hall at Eastern Oregon University with two shows set for 7:30 p.m. Saturday and 3 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 5-6.

Sponsored by Koza Family Dental Care, the gala event features over 200 area performers including the Grande Ronde Symphony Orchestra, Community Symphonic Band, EOU Chamber Choir, Grande Ronde Community Chorus, EOU’s African Drumming Ensemble and 45th Parallel Ensemble.

“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 in downtown La Grande and at the EOU Bookstore on campus. Advance ticket purchase is highly recommended. All proceeds from the event go to music funds held in the EOU Foundation.

Art Center East, the organization formed by the merger of ArtsEast and the Art Center at the Old Library, will also host an Artisan Holiday Bazaar in the Loso Hall lobby during the festival. Concessions will be sold to benefit the Community School of the Arts, a partnership between Art Center East and EOU that provides music programs for children and adults.
