The Southeast Arkansas Concert Association will present a Holiday Pops Extravaganza at 3 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 17, at the fine arts center at the University of Arkansas at Monticello.

The show will feature a variety of Christmas music performed by the South Arkansas Symphony and choir students from a number of area schools. The symphony orchestra is celebrating its 61st season, according to a news release.

The group will be joined by soprano Haley Greer, bass-baritone Greg Pearson and dozens of area choir students. Music will include traditional favorites, along with some rarely-heard newer carols, according to a news release.

The concert will be conducted by Kermit Poling, a Centaur recording artist who recently conducted the London Symphony Orchestra for a new album of his music. The finale will feature an audience sing-a-long medley of best-known carols.

Tickets are $20 and may be purchased at the door, by calling 870-460-1888, or at
