Thanks­giving has come and gone but the hol­iday season is in full swing. Make the most of this first weekend of December by checking out our selec­tion of some great events hap­pening on campus and around the city.

Here we come a car­oling: On Sat­urday, Boston Pops con­ductor Keith Lock­hart will lead an effort to set a Boston record for the number of car­olers singing, holding a hol­iday sing-​​along at the Chris­tian Sci­ence Plaza, right across the street from Northeastern’s neighbor, famed Sym­phony Hall. Last year’s attempt drew more than 3,200 singers. The car­oling starts at noon.

And all that jazz: Northeastern’s Center for the Arts is hosting New Orleans’ Own Hot 8 Brass Band Friday night in Blackman Audi­to­rium, with tickets avail­able for $5 for stu­dents with a North­eastern ID. For more than a decade, the band has played classic New Orleans street music, per­forming in weekly parades through New Orleans. They have been fea­tured in the Spike Lee movie “When the Levees Broke” and the HBO series “Tremé.”

First Friday: The MFA holds its monthly First Friday gath­ering com­plete with art, snacks and music on Friday at 5:30 p.m., fea­turing music by the local swing band Back Bay Rhythm Makers. The event is free with admis­sion to the museum, which itself is free for North­eastern under­grad­u­ates with a stu­dent ID.

Husky Bas­ket­ball: The men’s bas­ket­ball team, which already has a big win against talent-​​packed St. John’s Uni­ver­sity, faces Old Dominion this Sat­urday at 1 p.m. in Matthews Arena.

Husky Hockey: The men’s squad is away this weekend, facing future Hockey East rival Notre Dame, but the 10th-​​ranked women’s hockey team will host a home game against New Hamp­shire at 2 p.m. on Sunday at Matthews Arena.
