The Concert Band, directed by Erik Lynch, will perform “Christmas Legends” by Gary Gilmore, and the familiar and popular “Nutcracker Suite” by Tchaikovsky. Also on the instrumental side, Verona Jazz and Beyond, directed by Max Morden, will feature performances of “Little Liza Jane,” “Shake Up Christmas,” and the crowd-pleasing “Run Rudolph Run.”

Director Judy Szybist will lead the Jazz Vocal Ensemble in renditions of “White Winter Hymnal,” made popular by Pentatonix, and “Carol of the Bells.” The VHS Concert Choir, under the direction of Claire Ma, will perform two Hebrew folk songs – “Oseh Shalom” and “Hine Ma Tov,” which features a guest violinist, as well as “Mary Sat a-Rockin” by Greg Gilpin.

As always, alumnae of the program and all music lovers will be invited to join in the singing of the Hallelujah Chorus from Handel’s “Messiah” to cap off the evening.
