Sleigh bells rang. Dancers dashed. Drummer boys drummed. Students, faculty and guests performed an array of musical numbers at Metropolitan State University of Denver’s ‘Holiday Card to the City’ Dec. 9 and 10 at the King Center.

The concert featured the Department of Music’s Festival Choir and Symphonic Band, African Drum and Dance Ensemble, Jazz Combo, and Student and Faculty Chamber Groups, among other performers. It marked the first live performance of the holiday extravaganza since 2019.
