Holiday Pops is festive for the whole family on Sunday, December Sunday, December 4th at 3:00 pm
What are HOLIDAY POPS? It’s the song and dance you love this time of the year. This time around, the Norwalk Symphony is offering new music as well as a compilation of favorites from our December concerts of seasons past.
We will start with the Farandole, from George Bizet’s L'Arlesienne (sounds a lot like “We three Kings”). Then we hear two beloved arias from Handel’s Messiah, “Rejoice Greatly” and “I Know That My Redeemer Liveth” and Winter from Vivaldi’s Four Seasons.
Next will come dances from The Nutcracker, performed by dancers of the New England Academy of Dance, a Holiday Music Medley, O Holy Night, Leroy Anderson’s Sleigh Ride, and traditional Hanukkah songs.
The concert ends with everyone joining in on traditional Christmas carols and, of course, the Hallelujah Chorus from Messiah. Please join us for Cookies and Cider in the back lobby after the performance.
Soloists for the performance include sopranos Wendy Gerbier (also a Symphony Board Member) and Amelia Watkins, and Norwalk Symphony Concertmaster for this performance, Emanouil Manolov.
Norwalk Concert Hall is at 125 East Avenue. Individual tickets, which range from $10 for students and children, to $25, $37.50 and $50 for adults, can be purchased online at the Symphony’s website www.norwalksymphony.org or by calling the Symphony office at 203 956-6771.
