December ‘Out of the Blue’ showcases ‘Joys of the Season,’ College of Liberal Arts’ holiday gift to community

The December 2021 edition of Middle Tennessee State University‘s “Out of the Blue” TV magazine show is a first: a presentation of the beloved “Joys of the Season,” the annual holiday-themed arts showcase of the College of Liberal Arts, that audiences can enjoy from home this year.

The hourlong special brings activities from students and faculty from the Department of Art and Design, the School of Music and the Department of Theatre and Dance to TV and online for the first time.

Join us all month for:

• Performances of seasonal music by the MTSU Wind Ensemble, MTSU Men’s Chorale and MTSU Women’s Chorale in the School of Music.

• Students from the MTSU Dance Program presenting a faculty-choreographed version of a dance from “The Nutcracker” ballet.

• An original musical arrangement of “Jingle Bells” — plus a special student-choreographed dance — from MTSU Theatre students.

• An animated collection of Graphic Design Program students’ answers to the question “How do you find ‘Joy in the Season’?”

CLA Interim Dean Leah Lyons also explores the myriad options for study — and careers — available to students who choose liberal arts at MTSU.

You can watch “Out of the Blue,” with host Andrew Oppmann, anytime online on MTSU’s YouTube channel and on MTSU’s True Blue TV, airing on Murfreesboro cable Channel 9 daily at 6 a.m., 11 a.m. and 1:30 p.m Central  and on Roku, Apple TV and Amazon Fire TV, as well as on NewsChannel5+ at 3:30 p.m. Sundays..
