Holiday Celebration with the Hoos

Ray Petree III, staff writer

With Christmas just weeks away, UVA’s Cavalier Marching Band is looking to bring a new holiday tradition to Charlottesville.

Holiday With The Hoos is an upcoming concert being held at John Paul Jones arena on Dec. 3 at 3 p.m. in preparation for the holiday season. The event will consist of nearly 400 high school students from across five states, as far west as Colorado.They will be performing alongside the 320-member Cavalier Marching Band. The concert will run two hours and promises a series of performances from their halftime shows during the 2017 football season, as well as a few timeless holiday favorites.  There will be a series of surprise guest appearances that the event supervisors say will guarantee a very special afternoon.

The associate director of the Cavalier Marching Band, Dr. Andrew Koch, said the band is trying to make Holiday With The Hoos an annual tradition, that not only the UVA community can look forward to, but the Charlottesville community can look forward to for years to come.

For those interested, Doctor Koch has extended an offer to both PVCC students and faculty, giving them a $2 discount on the otherwise $12 tickets. Use discount code “CMB” with your PVCC ID online at Ticketmaster or in person at the John Paul Jones box office to get tickets.
