THATCHER – Eastern Arizona College’s Division of Fine Arts will stream its annual Christmas gift to the Gila Valley, Festival of Carols, on the College’s Facebook page and YouTube channel on Tuesday, Dec. 8 at 7:30 p.m.

This Christmas music extravaganza will feature EAC’s Choral and Instrumental Music Departments, as well as many beloved EAC choir groups, performing songs from traditional Christmas music to modernized versions of well-loved favorites.

“Festival of Carols really is a gift we prepare with care and love,” said Chase Moore, EAC associate professor of music, and director of Festival. “It is rare to see a show like this that includes groups across all disciplines. It takes a lot of coordination to pull it together, so we really hope that everyone can attend and ‘sing-in’ the holiday spirit,” he said.

This year’s program will feature pre-recorded selections from EAC’s Symphonic Band, EACompany, GuyZ, Women’s Choral, 4té, Men’s Chorus, Jazz Band, and many others.

“It will be a night you don’t want to miss and you won’t even have to leave your house to get there,” Moore said.
