Yuma, Arizona - Arizona Western College choirs, orchestras, band, and piano faculty will be performing at the annual Christmas Gala on Thursday, November 30.

“The audience can expect to hear arrangements of familiar Christmas classics, as well as more unfamiliar or exotic selections for the various ensembles,” said Shawn Pollard, AWC Professor of Instrumental Music.

Pollard added that the community is in for a very enjoyable performance, as the students will be performing a culmination of music they’ve been working on all semester.

The concert will begin at 7 p.m. at First Christian Church, 3261 S. Avenue 6E.

Admission is $10 for the general public; $15 for couples; and $5 for seniors citizens, servicemen, and students. Children 12 and under can attend for free. Proceeds will go to benefit the AWC music scholarship fund.
