It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas at Fort Hays State University and around Hays. Pine trees begin to spring up, twinkling lights decorate roofs and store windows, holiday hymns softly serenade shoppers, and families begin preparing for their holiday traditions. In keeping with their tradition, the Hays Symphony Guild and the FHSU Department of Music will present their annual benefit concert, "Holiday Pops."
Music will be performed by the Hays Symphony Orchestra; Dr. Joe Perniciaro, assistant professor of music; the Barbershop singers; the Fort Hays Singers; and Bradley J. Dawson, assistant professor of music.
The concert will begin at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 5 in the Beach/Schmidt Performing Arts Center on the FHSU campus. Admission will be $10 for adults, $6 for senior citizens and students, and free for children under the age of 12.
Tickets are available at the FHSU Memorial Union Student Service Center, Midwest Music, Hays Wal-Mart, the FHSU Department of Music, or any Hays Symphony Guild Board Member. Tickets will also be available at the door the night of the show.
