KALAMAZOO--The Western Michigan University School of Music presents its annual Christmas card to the community--a free holiday concert at 3 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 2, in Miller Auditorium.

Popular with audiences of all ages, the "Jazz for the Holidays" concert has become a season tradition for many Kalamazoo-area families. More than 100 musicians will present this year's show, including members of the Western Jazz Quartet; Gold Company, directed by Dr. Steven Zegree; University Jazz Orchestra, directed by Dr. Scott Cowan; GC II, directed by WMU alumnus Michael Wheaton; WMU Drum Choir, directed by Keith Hall; and the WMU Saxophone Choir, directed by Trent Kynaston.
