The Saint Mary’s University choirs and Concert Band will be performing for Family Weekend, Saturday, Oct. 1 at 2 p.m. in the Page Theatre.

Dr. Patrick O’Shea, director of both the SMU Chamber Singers and Concert Choir, said there are “250 students on campus involved in some sort of music. This concert is almost like a sample concert for our Lessons and Carrols Concert on Dec. 10.”

The Concert Choir will be performing songs in French, as well as pieces from Gilbert and Sullivan. The Chamber Singers will be performing Swedish pieces, in addition to a song called “Sing to the Lord”. The Women’s Choir, directed by Lindsy O’Shea, and the Concert Band, directed by Dr. Janet Heukeshoven will also be performing.

Tickets for the concert will be $10 for adults and $5 for seniors and students. For more information, visit
