The Twelve Days of Glorious Virtual Sounds of the Season

Now in its fifteenth tenure, Millersville University's Glorious Sounds of the Season features more than 250 MU Students in a Scholarship Benefit Holiday Concert, showcasing various ensembles including the MU Orchestra, Wind Ensemble, Concert Band, Jazz Ensemble, Chorale, and more! These ensembles and faculty soloists will present a musical celebration of the seasonal traditions full of majesty, mystery, and magic that will lift your spirits and usher you into the holiday season.

Since there will be no live, in-person performances this year, the Tell School of Music is assembling a virtual experience, The Twelve Days of Glorious Virtual Sounds of the Season!

Beginning December 1st, we will present twelve days of musical performances via our virtual platform. The first set of eleven videos will be short performances, each about two minutes in length, featuring many different facets of Tell School of Music. On December 12th, Glorious Sounds of the Season will conclude with a 25-minute performance featuring students, faculty, large ensembles, small ensembles, and the energy, variety, and fast-paced sequence that audiences have come to enjoy in the successful live shows since 2006.

Give a Gift to Music Scholarships!

The series of Glorious Sounds of the Season concerts are normally one of the largest fundraisers for the Tell School of Music with over $28,000 in music scholarship funds generated from ticket sales. 

While there are no tickets required for this year's virtual event, we are asking viewers to consider making a donation to support music student scholarships.

Our hope is that the twelve days will inspire the holiday spirit and, at the same time, generate interest in and enthusiasm to donate to a worthy cause.

Thank you for your gift ~
