Seminole State presents seasonal events full of holiday spirit

Seminole State's choirs will be featured in the Music Department's Holiday Choral Concert on Dec. 5 at the Sanford/Lake Mary Campus. 

The holiday season is in full swing at Seminole State College of Florida. In that spirit, the College is presenting concerts and a seasonal favorite planetarium show to get you in the holiday spirit.

Music

The Music Department at Seminole State offers the following holiday performances:

Holiday Choral Concert
Tuesday, Dec. 5, at 7:30 p.m.

This presentation of festive classics will feature Seminole State’s Concert Chorale, Community Choir and SeminoleSound.

The performance will be held in the Concert Hall (building G) on the Sanford/Lake Mary Campus, and is free and open to the public. The doors open at 7 p.m. For more information, visit the Music Department Events page.

Holiday Band Concert on SGTV
Starting in December

If you missed the Nov. 28 Holiday Band Concert, which featured Seminole State's Jazz Ambassadors and Symphonic Band, there's still time to catch it on TV. The show will air on Seminole Government Television (SGTV) starting in early December on Spectrum (Channel 498), AT&T U-verse (Channel 99) and CenturyLink’s Prism TV. It will also be streamed on the SGTV website so you can enjoy it throughout the season.

Planetarium

The Emil Buehler Perpetual Trust Planetarium at Seminole State College will offer the following holiday show:

'The Star of Bethlehem'
Saturday, Dec. 2, at 8:30 p.m., and Saturdays, Dec. 9 and 23, at 7 and 8:30 p.m.

A favorite seasonal presentation of planetariums around the world, the Emil Buehler Perpetual Trust Planetarium-produced version of “The Star of Bethlehem” has been praised by both secular and religious audiences alike for the last decade. “The Star of Bethlehem” looks in to the issue of the Christmas star from a scientific standpoint, breaking down the existence of Jesus of Nazareth, the story of the Magi and the astronomical events that may help to explain the Star. With cutting-edge research that is both scientifically and historically accurate, “The Star of Bethlehem” deftly explores the fine line between faith and science. Most appropriate for ages 9 and older.

Show prices are:

  • Adults – $6
  • Seniors (55+) – $4
  • Non-Seminole State Students – $4

The Planetarium is free for Seminole State students, faculty and staff with a valid Seminole State ID. The Planetarium is in building B on the Sanford/Lake Mary Campus. For more information and a full schedule of events, visit the Planetarium website, or call 407.708.2360.
