Penn State Altoona's Ivyside Pride choral group will perform More Than Just Words Friday, December 1 at 7:30 p.m., and Saturday, December 2 at 2:00 p.m. in the Misciagna Family Center for Performing Arts. Tickets are $5 for Penn State students and $7 general admission. Children under 12 are free.

More Than Just Words reflects the ideology that there is more to be experienced through vocal compositions than just lyrics. Each song that will be performed involved a deep meaning to the composer or to a specific group of people, and the singers of Ivyside Pride hope to convey that sentiment.

Ivyside Pride is directed by Bonnie Cutsforth-Huber, associate professor of music at Penn State Altoona. The group has performed both nationally and internationally, including at Carnegie Hall, Avery Fisher Hall, Strasbourg Cathedral, and St. Stephen's Cathedral in Vienna, Austria. In March 2018 the group will perform Mozart's Requiem with the New York City Chamber Orchestra in Carnegie Hall.

Tickets for More Than Words may be purchased at the box office, Monday – Friday, 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. and before and during all performances. Call 814-949-5452 for more information.
