The Southeast Missouri Symphony Orchestra will join forces with the Southeast Missouri State University Choir and Choral Union to present a festive holiday program on Tuesday. Conductor of the symphony orchestra Sara Edgerton tells KZIM KSIM this year’s theme is the “Many Moods of Christmas”. This concert, which will be held at the Donald C. Bedell Performance Hall, is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. Edgerton says it will feature popular holiday tunes, carols and other seasonal compositions for choir and orchestra. She says this is the first year in which all the music department has programmed an entire evening of music that is inspired by the holiday season. From the first notes of the ‘Nutcracker Ballet,’ to the joyous melody, ‘We Wish You a Merry Christmas,’ all of the music programmed on this concert will be “truly in keeping with the upcoming holiday season”, according to Edgerton.
