The Westmoreland Symphony Orchestra presents Home for the Holidays on Saturday, December 19, 2020 beginning at 7:30 p.m.
The WSO will perform holiday classics including Joy to the World, The First Noel, Deck the Halls and popular tunes including Christmas Time is Here from the 1965 program “A Charlie Brown Christmas,” and Mel Torme’s The Christmas Song, as well as Anderson’s Sleigh Ride and Ralph Vaughn Williams’ Fantasia on Christmas Carols. In addition, the concert will feature performances by the WSO Brass Quintet throughout the evening.
“We had a great response to our very first digital concert in October and reached viewers in 13 states and four countries,” said Endicott Reindl, Executive Director. “We look forward to presenting Home for the Holidays, a popular community tradition since 2009. Unlike many other presentations, the WSO performs live so the audience’s experience is as close to being in the theater as possible, and with the addition of the brass quintet it makes for a very exciting evening.” *update- due to new regulations issued December 10 the concert was recorded December 11.
Artistic Director Daniel Meyer will conduct the evening’s performance. He is Director of Orchestral Activities at Duquesne University, Music Director of the Erie Philharmonic and Director of the Lakeside Symphony Orchestra.
