O'Loughlin: Christmas Canticles
Handel: Hallelujah Chorus from Messiah

Join the Dakota Valley Symphony and Chorus and special guest narrator Mayor Elizabeth Kautz for a family friendly Christmas Celebration. Our own composer and principal trombonist, Randy Stokes, is preparing a delightful suite of pieces for the orchestra describing the scene at the Inn in Bethlehem. And our own Mayor Kautz will read us the story Twas the Night before Christmas, illustrated by the orchestra. We will also create our very own collection of pieces from Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker and will wrap it all up an audience sing-along of the Hallelujah Chorus. What a warm and inspiring concert to help us get into the spirit of the season!
