The WCU Symphony Orchestra, under the direction of Joseph Caminiti, will donate all concert proceeds to the university’s Resource Pantry. The concert is free and open to the public, but cash and check donations will be accepted, and ambassadors from the pantry will be onsite to answer questions and collect donations.
A pre-concert reception, including a mini concert, starts at 7:30 PM in the lobby.
Then, on Saturday, Dec. 1 at 3 PM in the Emilie K. Asplundh Concert Hall in the Philips Memorial Building, the Wells School of Music will present the 97th Annual Holiday Program.

An annual tradition for campus and community members, the Holiday Program is just one of more than 300 programs presented annually by the Wells School of Music. The program involves many of the school’s students and ensembles.
Ryan Kelly, an Associate Professor and the Associate Director of Choral Activities, directs the program, alongside multiple conductors.
“Our Holiday Program is a time-honored tradition that is well-attended by alumni, students, parents, and members of the surrounding community,” said Kelly.
