On December 10 at 7 pm, the Thunder Bay Community Auditorium’s stage will be in full swing of Christmas spirit, as the TBSO will be performing their annual Holiday Pops show. This performance is one of the most well-attended shows of the year, so it is best to get your tickets early to ensure your favourite seat.

The well-loved and entertaining Canadian conductor, Les Dala, will be returning as he leads the symphony through many holiday favourites. “This TBSO concert is a perfect concert for the whole family to get into the joyful mood of the holiday season. The program will be a musical feast with great music including well-loved chestnuts from the Nutcracker and the Messiah as well as lesser-known beautiful new discoveries,” says Dala.

This is a concert not to be missed. The stage will not only occupy the symphony, but will be joined by local groups including the Thunder Bay Symphony Orchestra Chorus, Studio One Dance, The Stringlings, Youth Celtic Session, and other local youth musicians/vocalists for what is sure to be an unforgettable event. Maestro Dala is delighted to be a part of this wonderful tradition and looks forward to making great music with everyone. Hope to see everyone at this winter holiday celebration.
