Lee University’s Symphonic Band will present its Christmas Concert on Monday, Dec. 2, at 7:30 p.m. in the Conn Center under the direction of Dr. Mark Bailey.

This will be in conjunction with Lee’s lighting of the Christmas tree ceremony at 6 p.m. in front of the Humanities Center on Parker Street. Music will begin at 7 p.m. in the Conn Center prior to the concert, immediately following the ceremony.

The Symphonic Band will perform Christmas classics such as “Carol of the Bells,” “O Come, O Come, Emmanuel,” “Joy to the World,” “Deck the Halls,” “Silent Night, Hark the Herald Angels Sing,” “Jingle Bells,” and “O Come All Ye Faithful.” Contemporary selections will also be performed.

“Lee’s Symphonic Band looks forward to presenting this gift to the local and campus communities to begin the Christmas season,” said Dr. Bailey.

The Symphonic Band comprises 47 musicians representing 16 different majors at Lee. Several of these students are former all-state and/or all-regional band participants in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, Ohio, and Tennessee. Most members have received academic scholarship awards for excellence in the classroom and excellence in performance.

Dr. Bailey currently serves in the School of Music as a professor of music. He has advanced training with the nation’s best wind conductors, including Eugene Corporon, North Texas University, Myron Welch, and the University of Iowa. He is a past president of the Christian Instrumentalists and Directors Association.

This event is free, non-ticketed, and open to the public.
