Celebration Concert on WOSU-TV
Watch the Music Celebration Concert on WOSU TV in true HD on Sunday, December 9 and again on Tuesday, December 25 at 8 p.m. Edited to fit an hour-long format, the concert will bring the best of The Ohio State University School of Music's annual extravaganza to the entire central Ohio area. WOSU Press Release
This popular annual musical extravaganza celebrates the holiday season and showcases the school's many performing groups from the OSU Symphony Orchestra to its Jazz Ensemble, Glee Clubs, Symphonic Band and much more, all presented in a non-stop collage setting.
Please note: This is a reserved-seating performance which traditionally sells out. We recommend that you order your tickets early. And, if you wish seats together, they must be ordered at the same time. For free BuckID tickets seated together, all BuckIDs must be presented at the same time.

Special event parking will be available in both the Ohio Union North and Arps garages; guests without OSU garage permits will be charged $5 at the garage entrance. Signs will be placed near the High Street entrance of Ohio Union North garage and near the College Road entrance of Arps garage.
