Christmas concert returns for holidays

Veronica Vasquez

Music is what we tend to hear around this time of year to get us in the holiday spirit.

The Corpus Christi Symphony Orchestra’s “Home for the Holidays” concert is the perfect event to get anyone in the mood for the holidays.

The Corpus Christi Symphony has been around since 1945, putting on such events for the community when ticket prices used to be $1.50. Now prices range from $21-$95.

Mark Francis, executive director, has only been with the program for a few months but knows the importance of the event.

“It is a Corpus Christi tradition,” he said. “The choir rehearses throughout the semester to prepare for the event and there are three major rehearsals that take place before the concert.”

Greg Graf, music director, will be directing the Del Mar Master Chorus and Concert Choir along with other faculty members of Del Mar, such as Susan Sturman, Karl Kemm and Scott Hagarty.

As the event has grown, so has the location. This year Home for the Holidays will be held at Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi Performing Arts Center, 6300 Ocean Drive.
