Decorations have been pulled out of boxes, lights are being hung on the eaves of houses, and the holiday season of music is upon us. USC Thornton’s annual Winter Gala is fast approaching.

On Saturday, Dec. 14, USC Thornton’s Choral & Sacred Music department presents its annual holiday concert, a scholarship gala that provides substantial support for Thornton student scholarships. The event will feature 250 singers and instrumentalists ringing in the season with carols and songs in an evening of pageantry for the entire community to enjoy.

We look back at last year’s winter gala and celebrate the scholarships it supports.
