In what has become a popular seasonal tradition in Los Alamos, the musicians of the Los Alamos Symphony Orchestra will again present the annual Holiday Concert at 7 p.m. Friday, Dec. 2 at Crossroads Bible Church.
Under the baton of conductor Tjett Gerdom, the full symphony will play popular versions of well known seasonal tunes. The concert also will include excerpts from Bizet’s L’Arlesienne Suite No. 2 and and from Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker Suite.
An appealing feature of this special concert is the free raffle drawing, open to anyone in the audience — young or old. The winner will stand on the podium, take the baton from maestro Gerdom and lead the orchestra in “Jingle Bells”
A sing-along is also included in this concert.
Doors for the concert open at 6:30 p.m. The concert is a gift from the orchestra to the community. There is no charge although donations will be gratefully appreciated.
