The Chadron State College music department will close its 2012 concert schedule Thursday, Dec. 13, with Mallets & Ivory, the annual holiday concert that features tunes by the CSC ensembles for percussion and keyboards. The free concert begins at 7:30 p.m. in Memorial Hall.
Dr. James Margetts, director of the keyboard ensemble, said concert-goers can expect the same style of holiday classics of which they’ve become accustomed and more.
He said the CSC guitar ensemble will join the concert to present a couple of songs in the style of the Trans-Siberian Orchestra. The crowd also will hear the vocals of Karin Keller, who has continued to entertain Mallets & Ivory audiences since graduating from CSC in 2001.
Concert-goers will have an opportunity to buy raffle tickets for quilts, which will be drawn during the second half of the concert. Proceeds of the raffle will benefit the CSC chapter of Music Teachers National Association, more commonly known as MTNA.
