The Oak Ridge Symphony Orchestra will join Sound Company and the Oak Ridge Chorus to “ring in” the holiday season during a concert on Sunday.
The concert starts at 3 p.m. Sunday in the Oak Ridge High School Performing Arts Center.
The holiday concert is presented by the Oak Ridge Civic Music Association.
The orchestra, under the direction of Dan Allcott, will open the concert with the “Hanukah Festival Overture,” composed by Knoxville’s own Lucas Richman. Music from “Mass of the Children,” and “Colors of Christmas,” will feature the children and the civic choruses. The performance will be dedicated to the victims of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shootings in Connecticut last year.
The Sound Company and Oak Ridge Chorus will also perform “Waltz of the Flowers” from the “Nutcracker” by Tchaikovsky; “The Polar Express,” “Sleigh Ride,” and “Winter Wonderland,” as well as other selections.
Two selections from Handel’s “Messiah,” “For unto us a child is born,” and the “Hallelujah Chorus” will feature the Oak Ridge Chorus, under the direction of Seth Maples.
The concert will conclude with a holiday carol sing-along with audience participation.
Tickets for the event are $25 for adults, $10 for young adults, and $5 for youth, and they are available at the door the day of the concert, online at www.OakRidgeSymphony.com, through the ORCMA office at (865) 483-5569, or at TNBank.
