Travel through Europe and the ages with the WSO for this special classical holiday celebration. Our journey takes us from the sacred brass sounds composed by Gabrieli for Venice’s St. Mark Cathedral to the splendor of the Italian Baroque and a gorgeous string concerto composed for Christmas night. From there, be swept away to Austria with a concerto that features four WSO principal musicians, and end with sweet bonbons of ballet highlights by Tchaikovsky. This is music for the entire family that will send you home with memories of holidays past, and with peace and joy for the present.
