The Cincinnati Pops' Annual Holiday Spectacular
If the thought of tiresome gatherings with distant relatives or yet another Nutcracker ballet makes you want to say 'Bah Humbug' to Christmas and all of its festive trappings, then perhaps you need the reinvigorating magic of Cincinnati's greatest holiday tradition! Packing a big ole pops punch, the Cincinnati Orchestra welcomes friends and family young and old to their special holiday concert filled with exultant singing, high energy dancing, cheerful humour and boundless joy.
Blending the big band swing of Duke Ellington's Nutcracker Suite with timeless classical arrangements of 'Mendelssohn's Hark! The Herald Angels Sing' and Rimsky-Korsakov's 'Dance of the Tumblers' from Snow Maiden, as well as singable retro classics like Jingle Bell Rock, All I Want For Christmas Is you and Jingle Bells, the program also features the dulcet tones of Broadway songstress Ashley Brown, who made waves during her tenure as Mary Poppins in the 2006 Great White Way production.
