The Cambridge Symphony Orchestra (CSO) will present its annual Holiday Pops concert on Sunday, December 15, 2019 at 4:00 PM at the Arlington Town Hall auditorium. Music Director Cynthia Woods will conduct the orchestra.
Join us for the CSO’s festive tradition of presenting seasonal and Broadway favorites (featuring Stephanie Scarcella, mezzo-soprano) in a holiday evening concert perfect for the whole family.
The concert includes traditional carols and a visit from Santa Claus alongside orchestral selections, including John Williams‘ concert suite from the Harry Potter film series.
Our Spotlight Partner for Holiday Pops is Arlington Eats. In 2017, Arlington EATS and the Arlington Food Pantry merged to accomplish one incredible mission, to eliminate food insecurity by providing nutritious and culturally appropriate food in a respectful and compassionate manner to any Arlington resident in need. At the concert, Arlington Eats will be accepting monetary donations as well as donations of unexpired, unopened, non-perishable food and personal care items. The food pantry is currently in most need of coffee (ground), dried beans, and soups.
The CSO 2019-20 season is supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council.
Tickets for this performance are $20 (general) and $10 (students and seniors) and can be purchased at http://www.cambridgesymphony.org
