The holidays are coming and Symphony Tacoma is getting into the spirit of things with songs from favorite holiday movies. The concert takes place at the Pantages Theater on Sunday, Dec. 8, 2:30 p.m.
Under the skilled hand of conductor Sarah Ioannides, the Pantages Theater stage will be teeming with singers, musicians and joy when Symphony Tacoma presents its annual collage of seasonal delights for the whole family. This year’s program features choral masterpieces and festive arrangements that evoke holiday spirit and feelings of celebrations at home. Selections from favorite movies including “Home Alone,” “Frozen,” “How the Grinch Stole Christmas” and “The Polar Express,” among others, will delight young audience members. Nostalgic classics such as “O Holy Night,” Tchaikovsky’s “March of the Toy Soldiers” from “The Nutcracker” and Lucas Richman’s “Hanukah Festival Overture” will further draw out the spirit of the season.
Joining the Symphony Tacoma orchestra on stage will be the Tacoma Refugee Choir, “a welcoming community of refugees, immigrants and friends who sing together to extend love, hope, and unconditional belonging,” under the direction of Erin Guinup. Guinup, also an accomplished soprano, will be the featured soloist on select numbers. Tacoma Youth Chorus, always a favorite for this program, completes the vocal line-up.
Tickets range from $24 to $85 and are on sale through the Tacoma Arts Live Box Office at (253) 591-5894 or via symphonytacoma.org.
