Dr. Krystal McCoy, Director of Choral Activities, explains, “This is the music department's annual December celebration of sounds of the season! My favorite aspect of this event is that all students involved in the music department make music together in a combined concert. It will include large ensembles, small ensembles, seasonal readings and even an audience sing along!”

Dr. Lawrence Johnson, Chair of the Department of Music at SUU, says, “When the SUU music department comes together in a large collaboration, it's always a very special event. The Make We Joy concert will be a festive celebration of the season and will showcase many of SUU's music ensembles. You won't want to miss it!"

Dr. Adam Lambert, Director of Bands, says, “The coming together of the full department for this holiday celebration has been a tradition now since 2013. It's been a great way to bring all the students and faculty of the SUU Music Department together for one grand performance. I look forward to it every year. And this year looks like it's going to be epic! The Wind Symphony will perform Russian Christmas Music and, along with the Symphony Orchestra, John Williams ‘Sound the Bells’!”
