Arrive early for Pellissippi State Community College’s hugely popular Holiday Spectacular, as seating is limited and only one show will be performed this year.

The Holiday Spectacular highlights the talents of more than 150 Pellissippi State students and employees performing classic winter tunes and carols. “Hark, the Herald Angels Sing!” “Greensleeves” and “Sleigh Ride” are among the seasonal selections on tap this year.

The annual concert featuring eight college ensembles, both vocal and instrumental, will be held at 7 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 1, in the Clayton Performing Arts Center on the Hardin Valley Campus, 10915 Hardin Valley Road. This year’s theme is “Merry and Bright!”

“Our annual Holiday Spectacular is a rich Pellissippi State tradition that brings together students, faculty and staff in a joyous occasion to usher in the holiday season,” said Larry Vincent, associate professor and music program coordinator for Pellissippi State.

Tickets are free and will be issued at the door on a first-come, first-served basis. Donations are graciously accepted at the door, however, to benefit the Music Scholarship fund.
