Friday, Dec 2 and Sunday, Dec. 4 at Tulsa PAC
[dropcap]The[/dropcap] gift of music amplifies the holiday spirit, and Tulsa Symphony Orchestra’s Home for the Holidays event perfectly embodies the idea of celebrating the holidays through song.
“[TSO] wanted to offer the Tulsa community a musical extravaganza at the holidays that was diverse and that would create new memories and traditions for families,” says Amy Roark, marketing manager and flautist at Tulsa Symphony Orchestra.
The event brings together talented voices from around the state: Tulsa Oratorio Chorus, Sweet Adelines and Darren Drone of Tulsa Opera, plus 125 voices from area high school choirs and spectacular Suzuki violinists, who will coalesce to perform treasured holiday favorites. Add to that audience sing-alongs and lush orchestral arrangements and the holiday spirit will be hard to ignore.
“Singing, to me, is such a big part of the holidays,” Roark says. “Combine that with the energy of 90 or so symphonic musicians on stage and that feeling of joy is magnified.”
Home for the Holidays will take the stage at 7:30 p.m. on Dec. 2 and 2:30 p.m. on Dec. 4 at the Tulsa PAC. Affordable childcare is offered to those with youngsters. Visit tulsasymphony.org for details and ticket information.
