About the event

Join us for a festive Christmas celebration where you will go on a journey through music to a snowy wonderland. Listen to the elegant motion of The Skaters' Waltz by Waldteufel. The pure beauty of the lush melodies throughout the piece will instantly put a smile on anyone's face. The Overture to Strauss' operetta Die Fledermaus will take you on a carefree stroll through the streets of Vienna with its light-hearted swaying rhythms and lyricism. The medley from the movie Frozen will take you on an icy adventure through the music of the Hollywood favorite. Hop in the carriage for Leroy Anderson's Christmas masterpiece - Sleigh Ride, and hear the clopping of the horses' hooves on the snow-covered ground.

The orchestra is also happy to be joined by the choir of Good Shepherd once again, this time for a merry time of jolly Christmas carols. The music of the orchestra and the choir will be sure warm the hearts of all in attendance. This concert will be a spectacular occasion for the whole family. You won't want to miss it!
