Holiday Pops – Burlington

The Vermont Symphony Orchestra’s Holiday Pops features festive music from around the world, a carol singalong, and a special appearance by the Bronze Ambassadors, a nationally-recognized student bell choir from Newport. Syrian composer Suad Bushnaq will join us for a performance of her beautiful Tomorrow, bringing a message of hope and peace. Russia is well represented with Glazunov’s “Winter” and selections from the Nutcracker, then back to America for Chadwick’s Jubilee & Noel, and – of course – Sleigh Ride! The VSO will be led by Guest Conductor Anne Decker.
