ANNUAL GPAC HOLIDAY CONCERT IS NOVEMBER 22
 
PEMBROKE, NC – Faculty, staff and students of the UNCP Music Department will perform in the 11th Annual Holiday Extravaganza concert on Friday, Nov. 22. The show starts at 8 p.m. and a mini-tuba concert will be held at 7 p.m. in front of GPAC.

Proceeds from this concert go to support music scholarships.  

All of the university’s ensembles and choirs will gather to perform uplifting renditions of holiday favorites. This family-friendly event also features a fun sing-along of well-known Christmas carols.

 “This is always such a tremendous performance,” said James Bass, director of GPAC. “It’s been a favorite of many of our patrons, but it’s also a favorite of ours. The talent of our students, faculty and staff is simply incredible.”
 
Bass said the annual concert helps to supplement students’ musical education by raising money for music scholarships.
 
“It is an extremely good performance, but it’s also a good cause because it helps make opportunities available for music students at the university,” he said.
 
The UNCP Holiday Extravaganza is one of several performances that is being held in conjunction with the Act I Diner’s Club. These themed meals are available for an extra charge, and will be served in the Chancellor’s Dining Room prior to performances in GPAC. Call the GPAC box office at 910-521-6361 for information.
