Seating limited, arrive early for annual Holiday Spectacular

Students sing and play instruments during the 2019 Holiday Spectacular
Pellissippi State students perform at the 2019 Holiday Spectacular. The annual concert returns in person on Dec. 2 after having to be streamed online due to the pandemic last year.

Arrive early for Pellissippi State Community College’s hugely popular Holiday Spectacular, as seating is limited and only one show will be performed this year. 

The Holiday Spectacular highlights the talents of more than 150 Pellissippi State students and faculty performing classic winter tunes and carols. “We Need a Little Christmas,” “Mele Kalikimaka” and “Christmas Time’s a Comin’” are among the seasonal favorites on tap. 

The annual concert featuring all eight college ensembles, both vocal and instrumental, will be held at 7 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 2, in the Clayton Performing Arts Center on the Hardin Valley Campus, 10915 Hardin Valley Road. This year’s theme is “Joy to the World!”  

Tickets are free and will be issued at the door on a first-come, first-served basis. Due to social distancing guidelines, only the first 375 guests will be admitted. Masks are encouraged when social distancing cannot be maintained, but they are not required. 

While the performance is free, donations are graciously accepted at the door for the Pellissippi State Foundation on behalf of the Music Scholarship fund. 

The Holiday Spectacular is part of The Arts at Pellissippi State series. For a list of Pellissippi State’s upcoming music events during spring 2022, visit
