San Bernardino, CA
On Saturday, December 17, the San Bernardino Symphony Orchestra will present its popular “Home for the Holidays” concert at the city’s historic California Theatre of the Performing Arts.
The concert will feature several holiday favorites including Beethoven’s Symphony No. 9 in D Minor Ode to Joy; selections from Tchaikovsky’s The Nutcracker Suite; Berlin’s White Christmas; Biegel’s Hanukah Fantasy; and more. In addition, four soloists and a 125-voice choir will join the orchestra.
This year’s festivities are also scheduled to include special pre-concert activities, such as strolling carolers and holiday cookie decorating.
When commenting about the event, San Bernardino Symphony Maestro Frank Paul Fetta said, “We encourage everyone to come out and share this marvelous concert with us.” He continued, “There is no need to drive an hour to experience world class entertainment. In fact, we created ‘Home for the Holidays’ to provide a complete holiday experience for the whole family right here in the Inland Empire.”
This year’s Home for the Holidays concert is being presented, in large part, through a grant from the San Manuel Band of Mission Indians.
