Holiday Scholarship Concert

November 19, 2021 | 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

The 29th annual Holiday Scholarship Concert will be live in the Schaefer Center on Friday, November 19 at 7:30pm!

The Holiday Scholarship Concert is coordinated by Dr. Stephen Hopkins, Professor of Choral Music and Director of Choral Activities. For 29 years, it has been an annual tradition to usher in the holiday season in the High Country. Almost every student in the Hayes School of Music is engaged in the concert through festive performances by many of our ensembles:

  • Steely Pan Steel Band
  • Brass Choir
  • Jazz Combo
  • Trombone Choir
  • Treble Choir
  • Clarinet Choir
  • Glee Club
  • Blazing Bassoons
  • University Singers
  • Horn Choir
  • Chamber Singers
  • Appalachian Symphony Orchestra

General Admission tickets to attend the concert in person are $12. All proceeds will benefit scholarships for Hayes School of Music students.
We will follow Appalachian State University’s face covering policies and request that audience members leave space between their party and others.

A free livestream will be available at music.appstate.edu/performances. Simply visit that page on Friday at 7:30 to watch the concert. Please note that the livestream will only be available as it is happening, not afterwards.  No charge is needed to view the livestream, but if you are able, please consider making a donation to support scholarships: givenow.appstate.edu/HolidayConcert

Throughout its history, our Holiday Scholarship Concert has helped to provide an affordable and accessible education for Hayes School of Music students. Through the generosity of our audience and sponsors, our cumulative total of the 29 years will likely surpass $250,000, all of which goes directly to our students.

If you are interested in becoming a sponsor, please visit givenow.appstate.edu/HolidayConcert or contact Melinda Friddell (friddellmf@appstate.edu) for more information.
