Continuing in the spirit of THE HOLIDAY SEASON STARTS NOW!!!!, let’s take note of the BSO’s current and generous offer of 10% off their Holiday Spectacular, effective until November 18th at 11:59 pm EST (coincidentally the same cutoff time and date for the Drop the Needle contest). There are showings December 18-23 at 2 and 7:30 pm each day (no showing on Dec. 21); children’s pricing applies to matinees. All performances are at the Meyerhoff.
Okay, enough of the technical stuff. Time for content! Let’s see. Pops conductor Jack Everly is conducting, there will be a chorus and dancers, and somebody named Ann Hampton Callaway is hosting (thanks, Wikipedia! Apparently she’s an accomplished singer, composers, lyricist, AND actress; should be good). They’ll even have some sort of photo-friendly display up in the lobby for portraits before the concert or during intermission.
But never mind all that. Come for the singing, come for the orchestra, come for Callaway, but above all, come for the TAP DANCING SANTAS.
How do the parents explain why there are so many Santas all at once?
