THATCHER, Ariz.—Eastern Arizona College’s Division of Fine Arts invites the entire community to come and enjoy its Christmas gift to the Gila Valley, Festival of Carols: A Christmas Tapestry, on Tuesday, December 4, at 7:30 p.m., in the EAC Fine Arts Auditorium.

This Christmas music extravaganza will feature EAC’s Choral and Instrumental Music Departments, as well as many beloved EAC choir groups, performing songs from traditional Christmas music to modernized versions of well-loved favorites.

“Festival of Carols really is a gift we prepare with care and love,” said Chase Moore, EAC associate professor of music, and director of Festival. “It is rare to see a show like this that includes groups across all disciplines and it take a lot of coordination to pull it together, so we really hope that everyone can attend and ‘sing-in’ the holiday spirit,” he said.

Performing this year is the EAC Symphony, Symphonic Band, Company, Guyz, Fourte, Women’s Chorale, Jazz Band, and many others! “It will be a night you don’t want to miss and we promise to have you home before Christmas!”

Festival of Carols will be presented free of charge. For more information about this event, contact Chase Moore at (928) 428-8467.
