What better way to celebrate December than with festive music, singing holiday favorites, and storytelling by one of Vermont’s most beloved radio hosts? Join our guest conductor Anthony Parnther, Vermont Public host Jane Lindholm, singers from the Lyric Theatre, and your Vermont Symphony Orchestra for a concert to get you in a joyful mood for the season. Enjoy well-known favorites like Tchaikovsky’s The Nutcracker, Anderson’s Sleigh Ride, and the Ukrainian Carol of the Bells, alongside new-to-VSO holiday repertoire by Rosephanye Powell and Darin Kelly, a reading of The Night Before Christmas, carols and an audience holiday sing-a-long!
