CSO’s “Home for the Holidays” adds some bluegrass
Many of Chattanooga’s attractions have something the whole family can enjoy this holiday season—but one event at the Tivoli Theatre is sure to give those looking for a classy night on the town with friends or family an evening they won’t want to miss.
On Dec. 20 and 21, at 7:30 p.m. and 3 p.m., respectively, The Chattanooga Symphony & Opera is presenting its annual holiday concert, “Home for the Holidays.”
Conducted by Jacob Harrison, this year’s concert, as in years past, will be in two parts. According to organizers, “the first half of the program is holiday classics, such as ‘Christmas Festival’ and ‘Farandole,’ as well as performances by the Metropolitan Bells,” with the latter directed by Gary Bynum.
Following intermission, (after getting your picture taken with Santa), Grammy-nominated banjo player Alison Brown, and local fiddler Fletcher Bright bring a hint of folk, bluegrass, and jazz to holiday favorites like “The Five String Nutcracker,” “Carol of the Kings,” “Greensleeves,” and “Sleigh Ride.”
Get tickets by visiting the Chattanooga Symphony’s website, chattanoogasymphony.org or by calling the box office at (423) 267-8583. Tickets are $21 for adults and $15 for students and kids.
Then put on your best and get in the holiday spirit by attending the classiest concert of the year!
