It’s a Wonderful Concert Roundup

‘Tis the season for classical Christmas holiday music! Oh, don’t grimace at me like that. Sure, you can rail against commercialism and grumble about the true meaning being lost and what have you — have fun with that. I’ll be over here, clapping my hands and declaring “CHRISTMAS TIME! SQUEEEEEE!” And I ask you — who will be having a better time?

Answer: I will. Wish to join me in my Yuletide joy? Well, one solution is to watch A Charlie Brown Christmas on repeat until you are healed. You could also try one of these concerts:

  • The Baltimore Symphony Orchestra believes that tap-dancing Santas are not enough anymore. They want to show you that people can fly, and what’s more, they can fly to a holiday soundtrack. It’s a holiday-themed Cirque de la Symphonie, with jugglers and contortionists and aerial artists and the whole nine yards of tinsel. Kids’ tickets are cheaper! December 7 through 11; some days also offer matinee performances. [ See it! ]
  • The National Symphony Orchestra is busting out the Pops moniker for this one, and also the denizens of what my Toronto friend likes to call the Soviet Republic of Khanuckistan. The Canadian Tenors star in a concert entitled “The Perfect Gift,” featuring “your favorite Christmas and holiday tunes.” Which is all well and good, as long as they sing the correct lyrics to my beloved “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas.” None of this “hanging a shining star” crap. December 8 – 11. [ See it! ]

About Jenn

Despite being the former digital marketing intern at the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, Jenn German does not like Mozart. Beethoven could've totally beaten him up. Also she has an arts management graduate degree from American University, but this changes nothing.
