Valley Symphony Association is pleased to announce a special Christmas concert combining the talents of the 65-voice Valley Symphony Chorus under the direction of Lenore Hample and the Valley Symphony Orchestra under the direction of Mike Kern.

The orchestra will be doing Stille Nacht (as performed by Mannheim Steamroller), Three Dances from the Nutcracker (Marche, Waltz of the Flowers, and Trepak), White Christmas, and Leroy Anderson’s Sleigh Ride. The chorus will perform Pergolesi’s Magnificat plus wonderful arrangements of popular Christmas Carols and many other holiday favorites including I’ll Be Home for Christmas, Three Kings of Orient, and Away In a Manger and All is Well. Plus, there will be an audience Christmas carol sing-along (including a sing-along of the Hallelujah chorus from Handel’s Messiah so bring your music!), and much more.

Concerts will be held Saturday, December 8, 2012 – 7:30 pm at the Delta Performing Arts Center and Sunday, December 9, 2012 – 3:00 pm at the Montrose Pavilion Auditorium.

Tickets are $20 for Adults and Seniors and $5 for students 17 under. Because this is a popular holiday concert, advance ticket purchases are encouraged and are available at Clubb’s in Delta, Homer L.
