The Las Vegas Philharmonic will present the music that makes the holidays magical with two concerts sure to bring a smile to even the grinchiest of faces. The orchestra presents A Classic Holiday, a traditional celebration for the entire family resplendent with sensational vocals and popular seasonal melodies that capture the spirit and merriment of the holiday season, including White Christmas, Ave Maria, Sleigh Ride, Hannukah Suite and much more. Kristen Hertzenberg (Phantom - The Las Vegas Spectacular) and Travis Cloer (Jersey Boys) join the orchestra, adding their vocal stylings to several selections plus a narration of ‘Twas The Night Before Christmas. The popular audience sing-along closes the show on a festive note. Richard McGee returns to guest conduct the Saturday, Classic Holiday concerts. Patrons are encouraged to come early for the performances to enjoy a merry atmosphere, including live entertainment in the lobby, a hot cocoa station, sweet treats and a special holiday craft activity. Kids of all ages are invited to take photos and visit with Santa at all three concerts. Members of Vegas City Opera will be caroling in the lobby along with the Green Valley High School Choir.
