Events are abundant this holiday season
There is no shortage of activities in which to participate during this holiday season. During this "most wonderful time of the year," a riches of events are at our disposal. One of the many wonderful things about them is that they do not require financial riches to attend; for free to limited funds, you and your family have several options.
Below are some of those activities to look forward to.
Tonight, at 7:30 p.m., you are invited to Holiday Classics featuring the Southeast Missouri Choral Union, University Choir and Symphony Orchestra. Enjoy holiday music and Christmas carols that will put a smile on your face, particularly as they treat the audience to classics such as "Sleigh Ride." It takes place at Donald C. Bedell Performance Hall on the River Campus, and tickets are $16 to $19.
Wednesday provides another opportunity for music lovers. The Ten Tenors begins at 7:30 p.m. at the Donald C. Bedell Performance Hall. For $26 to $32, attendees will hear music from singers from Australia. According to the event listing on semoevents.com, the group will "wow audiences with their unique vocal abilities and repertoire."
Friday continues the music lover's buffet with the Class Voice III Recital, taking place at Robert F. and Gertrude L. Shuck Music Recital Hall at the River Campus at 7:30 p.m.
The Christmas season has not halted Southeast's 2016-2017 Speakers Series. It continues with an event that is out of this world: "The Sky is Not the Limit: Lessons from a Year in Space." NASA astronaut Capt. Scott Kelly, who returned recently from spending a "record-breaking" year in space, will speak on Wednesday, sharing stories of his exploration. The program is free for Southeast students, faculty and staff. The cost for general admission is $10.
We are fortunate to have such a wide array of events in our area, and we encourage you to take advantage of what is being offered.
