School of Music to host annual holiday concert

Traditional holiday carols and a flourish of selections from Africa highlight this year’s 13th annual Holiday Concert at 3 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 5. The concert will be held in the Boutell Memorial Concert Hall in the Music Building.

Sold-out audiences in past years suggest that this event has become a holiday tradition for the DeKalb community.
