Symphony Presents Annual Holiday Concert

The Tulare County Symphony’s annual Holiday concert on Saturday, December 20 is designed to be family-friendly. It’s really a pops concert filled with traditional Holiday tunes such as “Sleigh Ride,” “Little Drummer Boy” and the “Nutcracker Suite” (played Les Brown style).

The concert will be performed twice—at 3pm and 7:30pm. The matinee will feature a large children’s choir singing “My Christmas Tree” from “Home Alone 2.” The evening performance will feature the El Diamante High School choir singing “We Wish You a Merry Christmas” and “O Holy Night.”

Local singers will also perform Holiday favorites.

Several pieces have become an annual tradition, such as “Polar Express” and “I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas,” which is always sung by a young member of Encore Theatre’s Kids Company.

The evening concert will also feature a sing-along of the “Hallelujah Chorus.” All singers who know the piece are invited to bring their music and join the orchestra on stage.

Please note that the date has changed from what was announced in the season brochure.

Tickets are $30 to $39.50 at the symphony office, 208 W. Main St., Suite D, Visalia, downstairs in Montgomery Square. Student prices are $10. Tickets are also available at 732-8600 and at
