Snow is on the ground, the semester is nearing its end and the holiday season is upon us.

That means it’s time for fall concerts.

Five SUNY Cortland musical groups will be performing at venues on campus and throughout the community this week. Admission is free and open to the public unless otherwise noted.

  • The College-Community Orchestra will perform “Dreams and Nightmares: Music of Mozart, Mendelssohn, Mussorgsky and Tchaikovsky” at 8 p.m. in Old Main Brown Auditorium on Tuesday, Dec. 3. The orchestra, directed by Ubaldo Valli, is made up of students and members of the local community. It is cosponsored by SUNY Cortland and the Dan & Rose McNeill Foundation.
  • On Wednesday, Dec. 4, the Africana Studies Department and the SUNY Cortland Gospel Choir will present a holiday concert at Faith Baptist Church at 1731 Route 13 in Cortland. The event begins at 7:15 p.m. A shuttle bus will leave the Corey Union steps at 6:30 p.m. and 7 p.m. and return to campus at the conclusion of the concert.
  • SUNY Cortland’s Choral Union will perform its fall concert, “Christmas: Sacred and Secular” at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 5 at Rose Hall at 19 Church Street in Cortland. The Choral Union consists of 45 singers, both community members and SUNY Cortland students. They plan to perform a number of pieces, including selections from “How the Grinch Stole Christmas,” “White Winter Hymnal” and classic texts by Franz Biebl, Tomas Luis de Victoria and Ola Gjeilo. This concert will feature guest soloist Steven Stull and Professor David Neal will conduct.
  • The College Singers, welcoming new conductor and music director Kelley Hamilton, will present its fall concert, “Thoughts and Prayers, Moving Toward the Light” at 7 p.m. in Brockway Hall Jacobus Lounge on Friday, Dec. 6. The vocal ensemble's fall offering will be a live soundtrack of musical theatre pieces that frame today's challenging times.
