N.C. Symphony: Holiday Pops

When: Fri., Nov. 27, 7:30 p.m. and Sat., Nov. 28, 3 p.m. 2015

We have entered the Christmas Music Zone: Radio stations rotate every pop artist’s carol covers 24/7. Speakers in the ceiling over grocery store aisles blare “Jingle Bell Rock.” Animatronic elves and reindeer emit unintentionally foreboding electronic chimes. The tonic is live holiday music. The North Carolina Symphony teams with the North Carolina Master Chorale and special guest vocalists—as well as you and your family—to bring holiday music back to life with selections from The Polar Express and Frozen, plus annual sing-alongs. Baritone Alfred E. Sturgis and the aptly named sopranos Lisa Jolley and Jeanne Jolly join in, and Santa Claus hangs out in the lobby before the show. Bring a Soup-to-Go donation to support the Inter-Faith Food Shuttle’s BackPack Buddies program to help feed hungry children across the Triangle, and receive a $20-off coupon for a January symphony concert. —Chris Vitiello
