The Lubbock Chorale Holiday Concert is one of the many Christmas traditions in Lubbock. Joining the Front Row to talk about the concert is Dr. John Hollins.

How is the Lubbock Chorale different from other choral organizations?

First of all, we are in our 42 season, so just shy of 3 years ago, we celebrated our 40th, ruby anniversary, and it was a wonderful milestone for the chorale. It has a rich history. It has always been associated with Texas Tech University School of Music from inception as an entity.
