The Jefferson City Symphony Orchestra will be celebrating 100 years in a collection of concerts that honor past conductors and members.

Part of the 100th-season collection is a concert titled Sounds of the Season, which will feature "Handel's Messiah" and the "Moods of Christmas."

The concert will be performed from 7-9 p.m. Tuesday at Lincoln University in the Mitchell Auditorium in the Performing Arts Center. Tickets can be purchased online at www.jcsymphony.org or at Will West Music, Field & Morrison Music and Capital Music.

"We are excited," symphony conductor Kevin Baker said. "Each year, the orchestra grows and welcomes new talent, and we love performing for the community and having their support."

The JCSO Chorus will also be performing the songs alongside the orchestra.

"I feel like this show has something for everyone," Baker said. "We have cut down the pieces in length and worked hard to ensure it all flows together. It will be a really good performance, and I encourage the public to come out and see it."
