Looking for a nudge to get in the holiday spirit

East Tennessee State University has you covered with the annual Holiday Concert, a popular Department of Music tradition for more than half a century. 

A pair of performances are set for Saturday, Dec. 2, at the ETSU Martin Center for the Arts. Times for the concert, titled “And On Earth, Peace,” are 4 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. 

“This is such a special ETSU tradition,” said Dr. Alan Stevens, chair of the department. “Though tickets will be available at the door, we strongly recommend purchasing those now.” 

The festive event features much-loved holiday classics, as well as new pieces performed by talented ETSU students. The concert regularly sells out.  

Tickets are available via the Martin Center Box Office. Order tickets online or call the Martin Center at (423) 439-2787.  

Located as 1320 W. State of Franklin, the Martin Center is located across from the main campus of ETSU.
